  2. 2. The Bible Uses Rich Language to Describe Our Covenant Lifewith God.A. Salvation (Acts 2:21, 47; 4:12; 16:30; 28:28; Romans 1:16; 8:24; 11:11; I Corinthians 1:18; II Corinthians 2:15; Ephesians 1:13; 2:5, 8; Philippians 2:12; I Thessalonians 5:9; II Timothy 1:9; 2:10; 3:15; Titus 2:11; 3:5; Hebrews 2:3; I Peter 1:10; Jude 3)B. New birth (John 3:3-5; I Peter 1:23; I John 2:29; 3:9; 4:7; 5:1, 4, 18)C. Redemption (Galatians 3:13; 4:5; Titus 2:14; I Peter 1:18–19; Revelation 5:9)D. Marriage (II Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5:23–27; Revelation 21:9)E. Adoption (Romans 8:14–15, 19, 23; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Philippians 2:15; I John 3:1–2)F. All of these metaphors suggest: 1. Transition 2. RelationshipHoliness Is Our New Way of Living.A. Holiness is not a special relationship for leaders or those on the platform.B. Holiness is us living the life God has invited us to live, e.g., living like those redeemed, like children, like a bride, etc. Romans 6:19: "I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleannessNotes
  3. 3. and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness." Romans 6:22: "But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life." II Corinthians 7:1: "Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holi- ness in the fear of God." Ephesians 4:24: "And that ye put on the new man, which after God is creat- ed in righteousness and true holiness." I Thessalonians 3:13: "To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints." I Thessalonians 4:7: "For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness." Titus 2:3: "The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things." Hebrews 12:10: "For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness."C. We are to pursue holiness. Hebrews 12:14: "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which
  4. 4. no man shall see the Lord." I Peter 1:15–16: "{15} But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; {16} because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."The Christian Life Is Qualitatively Different.A. Different from the world Titus 2:12: "Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world." Romans 12:1–2: "{1} I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. {2} And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." II Corinthians 6:17: "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you." Colossians 2:8: "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." I Peter 2:9: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light."B. Different from our own tendencies Romans 7:5: "For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death." Romans 13:14: "But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provi- sion for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof."We Must Submit to the Working of Gods Spirit.A. God empowers us to live up to the covenant into which He has called us (Philippians 2:12–13; Ephesians 3:20; Acts 1:8).B. Life controlled by the Spirit versus life controlled by our flesh 1. Life in the flesh (Galatians 5:16–21) 2. Life in the Spirit (Galatians 5:22–25; Romans 8:1-9)
