In Christianity, the root of all sexual sins is a selfish obsession to ones own desires and gratification. In one sense, Self-love is the root of all sexual immorality. So the way to fight sexual sins in our relationships in the church and in our marriages is to learn to love others and understand what it means to love them. Sacrificial love towards our spouse is the way to fight sexual temptation.
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.
In Christianity, for a person to grow in godliness, he doesn’t need an instruction manual. What He needs to do is to behold and embrace Christ’s love for himself daily, and that inevitably starts maturing him. It is to grow in his understanding of God’s love for himself that begins to change the heart and causes him to have basic Christian virtues.
