GRACE AND HOLINESS
July 25, 1999
"NOT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE WORTHY TO BE MINISTERED TO"
This will sound harsh to
some people. If God is love, how can this be.
We are saved by GRACE, but there is no place in the Bible, where it is stated that we can abuse God's GRACE. On the contrary, we are told to guard our faith and cherish the GRACE of God.
The apostle Peter spoke very
sternly on this subject - 2 Peter 2:10-22
It is imperative that we
understand THAT ANY CHRISTIAN WHO IS LIVING AND WALKING IN THE
FLESH, CANNOT PLEASE GOD! Romans 8:1-9
During the 14th century after Christ a large portion of people died in a plague, that swept across Europe. Its root came from raw sewage - which God had addressed some 3000 years earlier - Deut.23:12-14
Again the words of the prophet Hosea 4:6 stands out like a banner of fire.
Let us now begin to look in detail what the Bible teaches concerning holiness:
1. Do not walk in the vanity
of the mind - Eph.4:17-21
Do you have an ear to hear?
