Do you take holiness seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. While many will indeed speak of their desire to “become more like Jesus”, it seems that any serious discussions about pursuing personal holiness are immediately dismissed by modern evangelicals as nothing but legalism and phariseeism.

If more Christians took seriously God’s command to come out from the world, stay separate from the world, and even hate the world so that they might become more like their Saviour, they would so shine as lights in this world that many would come to Christ.

God calls you to take holiness seriously:

“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14) “For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.” (Romans 6:19)
