Sermon Outline for October 16, 2022
JOURNEYING TOGETHER: Cherishing Holiness

Romans 1:1-5

Hebrews 12:14, “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

Biblical Survey of “Holiness”
Exodus 19:5-6
Ezekiel 36:16-29
Luke 1:68-75,
Romans 1:1-5

Holiness is essential for ...
1. knowing God
1 John 2:3-6, We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

2. our joy and happiness
John 15:10-11, If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.

3. our effectiveness as Christians

4. the health of our church community
Membership Covenant: “HOLINESS - I commit to pursue holiness and purity in all aspects of my life. I will strive to conform my life as best as I can to look like Christ, providing a model and witness to his teachings and commands. I will strive to eliminate all forms of sin, both public and private, and if I stumble in my sin, I will pursue confession, repentance, and restoration.”

5. blessing the world
Acts 3:24-26, “Indeed, beginning with Samuel, all the prophets who have spoken have foretold these days. 25 And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’ 26 When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”

Ezekiel 47:1-12
