25 Nov Be Like Jesus
An Increasing Anointing for Holiness is coming to God’s people…
‘… but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.”‘
– 1 Peter 1:15-16
First… we get the REVELATION from Him.
Second… we BELIEVE.
Third… we POSSESS that for which we believed.
Faith brought us into salvation… and it is through faith that we are being made holy like Jesus.
Peter was talking about the Gentiles receiving the Gospel in Acts 15
“So God, who knows the heart, acknowledged them by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He did to us, and made no distinction between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.”
– Acts 15:8-9
“…purifying their hearts by faith.”
FROM FAITH TO FAITH
‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”‘
– Romans 1:16-17
BELIEVE UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS
‘For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.’
– Romans 10:10
HE WILL DO IT
‘Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.’
– 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
