Growing in Holiness does not require us to isolate ourselves from the world, and practice celibacy. The Bible never teaches such an extreme view and practice of holiness. If the Bible does not condemn us from being part of the world, then how do we work towards purity? What does the Bible teach about growing in holiness and fighting sin? Listen to the sermon to learn more.
Christianity is not just about believing in Christ and being saved by faith, but it is also about showing godliness through our deeds. Holiness is not an option, but an inevitable fruit of Christian faith. Growing in holiness is an evidence that we are indeed God’s children.
In Christianity, God does not give spiritual gifts to some and leave the rest. He gives spiritual gifts to everyone through His Holy Spirit, for His glory and for the benefit of others. Spiritual gifts are meant for stewardship by serving God and serving others.
The world’s definition of unity and the practice of it is very different from that of the Bible. Christian unity is very radical, in that, it transcends beyond cultural and economical boundaries. In this passage of Ephesians, Paul directs our thoughts on why pursuing unity matters for believers and how to practice it.
