Pastor Bill Calvin delivers this weeks message in the series “God, Who are You”. There are 3 points to be made in the discussion of God’s Holiness being full of surprises: 1.] God’s Holiness is fearsome, 2.] God’s holiness is evangelistic, and 3.] God’s Holiness calls US to Holiness.
God’s Holiness is beautiful! 1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalm 29:2, Psalm 96:9 , Glory is due His Name and the beauty of His Holiness. We should fear before His Holiness.
Leviticus 9:23; God’s Holiness IS full of surprises. Proverbs 9:10; Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy one is understanding.
533 Bible verses use the word Holy. 184 of them are in the new testament, and 100 of those are in conjunction with the word “spirit” as in : Holy Spirit. Holiness has an evangelistic edge because Jesus defeats sin! As sin increases, Grace abounds even more! Romans 5:20
Be in the world but not OF the world, but that is hard to do because we are swimming in sin. But how can sin and darkness not be found and chased out by Jesus and a spirit filled Christian? How can sin stand a chance? Ephesians 5:18 , be filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 11: God will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.
