through holiness by Bruce Wilkinson
-Linda Kim 10RH
"When we think of holiness, great saints of the past like Francis of Assisi or George Mueller spring to mind-or contemporary giants for the faith like Mother Teresa. But holiness is not the private preserve of an elite corps of martyrs, mystics, and Nobel Prize Winners. Holiness is the everyday business of every Christian. -Chuck Colson
1. Turning your heart
toward holiness
"The destined end of man is not happiness, nor health, but holiness. God is not an eternal blessing machine for men. He did not come to save men out of pity; He came to save men because He had created them to be holy.-Oswald Chambers
holiness=seperation
"Then Moses said, 'I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.' So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, 'Moses, Moses!' And he said, 'Here I am.' Then he said, "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground."
-Exodus 3:3-5 ground: holy --> God seperated
rest of the desert: unholy --> God didn't choose
seperation from one thing +
to a different thing
subtraction and addition
--> get rid of unholy ways but
PURSUE his holy way. Flee (separate yourself from) also youthful lusts; but pursue (separate yourself to) righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. -2 Timothy 2:22 1. Trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Three stages to holiness
2. Seperate myself to the Lord Present ourselves to him
a living sacrifice
ownership of our body
the moment you trust Christ "It is time for us Christians to face up to our responsibility for holiness. Too often we say we are 'defeated' by this or that sin. No, we are not defeated; we are simply disobedient. It might be well if we stopped using the terms 'victory' and 'defeat' to describe our progress in holiness. Rather we should use the terms 'obedience' and 'disobedience.' -Jerry Bridges
3. Progressive Holiness

--> more like Christ
moment of salvation
physical death "You will reap what you sow, whether holiness or unholiness." ANGER

cleanse yourself from sin
flee lusts Righteousness cleanse themselves from current sin
--> gain righteousness toward holiness
--> get a sin out of life Temptation "No man knows how bad he is until he has trid to be good.There is a silly idea about that good people don't know what temptation means. -C.S.Lewis The Lord mercifully restricts Satan's freedom pushing us over the edge.
God will limit your temptation according to your own ability. He never leaves you alone with it. 3. Habits of holiness-praise & fasting

2. Enjoy yourself by having a variety in
your life

habits in your mind.
