But what does holiness practically mean for our church in 2018? Come and see as we look into the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5 and 6 to hear Christ's call for everyday holiness.
Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect
SET APART TO BE...
Jesus' call is to holiness as we are to be like our Lord and not this world! We begin to see what that looks like in The Beatitudes - Jesus' blueprint for a life set apart. Matthew 5:1-16
Social justice has been the buzz lately. But how does it compare to God's holy justice and holy love? Called to far more than compassion, Christians are to even shower our enemies with a holy love!
Matt. 5:21-26, 38-48
SET APART TO SHINE
We continue with the second half of the Beatitudes in our quest to embrace Christ's call to holiness, concluding with His amazing picture of His people being salt and light in the world. Matt. 5:1-16
SET APART TO BE PURE
Christ calls us not to just abstain from some bad behavior, but to have purified hearts that pour out in radically different lives. Come and see how and why God's good plan for Christian sexuality is set apart from our culture's concepts.
SET APART TO GIVE
Christian saints are called to have a very different relationship with money and charity. We turn to Matt. 6:1-4, 19-24 for Christ's revelation on holy giving and living in everyday life.
SET APART FROM WORRY TO PEACE
What has got you worried these days? Christ doesn't promise us carefree living, but does call His followers to have a very different relationship to anxiety, worry, and everyday pressure. We find hope in Jesus' great peace in Matt. 6:25-34.
