Series: New Testament Sermons


I Peter 1:13-16 KJV  Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;  [14]  As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:  [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.


-There is a great responsibility to teach and preach holiness in our times because it needs to be a high priority.  It is imperative that we hear God’s high call to holiness.

-Our culture is changing so dramatically every day that we can get punch drunk unless there is a willingness to find our bearings through a clear understanding of Scripture and a relationship with God through prayer.

There is a story told of an elderly woman who was pulled over by a state trooper on the interstate.  When the trooper got up to the car, he told the lady he was going to have to give her a ticket.  She wondered why he would be giving her a ticket because she said that she was so meticulous about the posted speed limit signs.  He told her that there were speed limits on the interstate and that she was only driving 20 mph which was too slow, she had to drive at least 45 mph.  She assured him that she had just noticed a sign that said 20 on it.  He kindly told her that she was in Interstate 20 and that this was simply the road number.
