Disciples are continuously maturing. We learn to think and act more like Christ. But if none of us can be perfect, what did the Apostle Peter mean when he told early disciples, “you must be holy in everything you do”?
I Peter 1:13-16
Live For The MOMENT You Will SEE Jesus FACE To FACE!
“Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but He has not yet shown us what we shall be like when Christ appears. But we do know we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as He is pure.” I John 3:2-3
Understand How We GROW in CHRIST LIKENESS.
“If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it is not looking for Him and doesn’t recognize Him. But you know Him, because He lives WITH you now and will be IN you later on.” John 14:15-17
Understand the CALL of God to HOLINESS!
“For God saved us and CALLED us to live a HOLY LIFE. He did not do this because we deserved it, but because that was His plan before the beginning of time---to show us His grace through Jesus Christ.” II Timothy 1:9
