Pursuing Holiness

Pursuing Holiness

2 Corinthians 7:1Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.

God pours out astonishing promises on His beloved children – forgiveness, guidance, eternal life! Since we have these assurances, we’re empowered to pursue holiness.

Removing Contaminants

We must examine our hearts and lives, asking God to reveal anything tainting our body or spirit. Sin and impurity grieve the Holy Spirit. As they’re exposed, we must repent.

Training for Godliness

Let’s cultivate holy habits and influences that will train our hearts God-ward – Scripture meditation, prayer, worship, Biblical community, and more. These shape us into Christlikeness.

Reverence for God

Our motivation is profound reverence for the holy God.

We yearn to live in a manner pleasing and honoring to Him who saved us at infinite cost. By His grace, holiness can flourish.
