HOLINESS THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD
John 8:2-11; 17:17
- It is possible to live a holy life. Jesus prayed for it. And the power is available if we trust God’s word.
[John 17:17, ESV] Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
- God’s word keeps us holy and fills our heart with lasting joy.[Psalms 19:8-9, ESV] the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether.
- Not everything is relative. God’s word enables us to discern and separate truth from falsehood in every situation.[Hebrews 4:12, ESV] For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.AMEN
