Set Apart Session 1
Verse: 1 Peter 1:13–1:21, 1 Peter 2:5–2:12
Two Reasons Why We Should Strive for Holiness
I. Saved to be Holy (1 Peter 1:13-21)
Worldliness…the worship of pleasure (for self).
Holiness…the pleasure of worship (of God).
To the degree that we comprehend and experience God’s holiness, it is to that degree that we will pursue it ourselves.
II. Be Holy to Save (1 Peter 2:5-12)
We are set apart to be holy, not in separation from the world, but so that we would be sent into it—sent to be the means of their salvation, to be proclaimers of the glories of Christ and what He has done, to declare the mercy of God in offering sinners a way out.
“God has given us the joy of spiritual sight, so that we might spread the reputation of our eye doctor.” ~John Piper
