"Be holy."  One of the many commands in scripture and a principle where the focus is often on external behavior modification.  However, rather than something we are to strive after, holiness is the attribute most often and most profoundly ascribed to God.  In light of who God is, we can properly see who we are and then see holiness as a gift God gives through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus.  Only then, does our focus of holiness shift to an empowered lifestyle we are called to live out in light of our new nature and identity in Christ.  In the final three weeks of the semester, join us as we unpack these truths in a three-part message entitled, "Holiness: A Gift Given, An Empowered Lifestyle."
