Seeking God Through Holiness


Hebrews 12:14-17              February 7, 2016           Link for audio/video/manuscript

A genuine faith in Christ will produce an appetite for holiness, a yearning for righteousness, and longing for the things of God beyond this world. Our positional holiness in God is the character of God that sets us apart from the world, imputed into us through Jesus’ death and shed blood on the cross. Our personal holiness is the bearing of the fruit of our positional holiness in God by striving for peace with everyone; by pursuing the holiness of being set apart for God so we might see Him; by speaking grace and showing grace and giving grace to one another and others; by forgiving one another and others as God has forgiven us; and by loving God and treasuring God and seeking the things of God in this life and in the life to come.
