And He Himself gave some to be....evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ...

Be Holy

This Sunday we started a new series of sermons as we are working through Ephesians 5:1-21. This series is titled Be Imitators of God.

If we are to imitate God then we must understand His character, so the first thing we studied from Ephesians 5:1 is the chief quality of God's character, which of course is His holiness.

We forget at times that God is perfect in holiness. He is holy, holy, holy. We need to remember, and fear Him, for we are unholy! But as we do remember how holy God is, as we gain a proper view of Him, we realize as Isaiah did that we are unclean.

Since we know that God is holy, and upon that basis He demands that we too be holy, then how can we obey the command? How can we imitate God by being holy? We find the answers from Isaiah 6:1-7; Lev. 11:44-45; 1 Peter 1:13-16; 2 Peter 1:3-4; James 1:21; 2 Thess. 2:13-15; Romans 8:28-30; and 2 Cor. 3:18.
