Lesson Six 6

Sunday 7th October 2018 

Topic: Be Holy  

Memory Verse: "But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversion;” - 1 Peter 1:15 

Bible Passage: Psalm 15:1-5

15:1 A Psalm of David. LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

15:2 He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart;

15:3  He [who] does not backbite with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;

15:4  In whose eyes a vile person is despised, But he honors those who fear the LORD; He [who] swears to his own hurt and does not change;

15:5  He [who] does not put out his money at usury, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these [things] shall never be moved.

The journey to holiness begins with a total submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the leading of the Holy Spirit. God is holy and cannot condone sin (Isaiah 59:2) because everything about Him is holy (1Peter 1:16). Hence, believers are commanded to live holy in order to be like God (Matthew 5:48). To fulfil this mandate, believers must understand the reasons for holy living and the benefits that accompany it.

1. Why believers must be holy
2. Benefits of holiness

Our God is a holy God and He commands every believer to be perfect in His sight (Leviticus 20:26; Genesis 17:1; Ephesians 1:4). God desires to use believers as His chosen vessels to reach out to the numerous sinners out there, hence, believers must be holy (2Timothy 2:21). Holiness is necessary for a believer to do exploits and do greater works (John 14:12). Sinners cannot fellowship with a holy God (1John 1:3-7). The believer must be holy in order to be able to see God on the last day (Hebrews 12:14).

A holy believer receives classified information from God (Genesis 18:17; Amos 3:7; Psalm 25:14). God builds a wall of protection around such a believer (Proverbs 18:10). He will also have peace with his enemies (Proverbs 16:7). He will enjoy divine blessings and long life (Deuteronomy 28:1-13; Proverbs 3:1-2; 4:10). Living holy enables every believer to enjoy God’s presence and to live forever with God in eternity (Psalm 24:3-5).
Other benefits include answered prayers (Luke 1:13; Psalm 34:15,17), secure future (Isaiah 3:10; Jeremiah 29:11), divine health (Exodus 15:26), supernatural prosperity (Psalm 92:12), victory (Deuteronomy 28:7), promotion and supernatural anointing (Hebrews 1:9).

Living holy must be the yearning of every true believer (Matthew 5:6). Always strive to live holy.

1. O Sunday School, on the Lord's day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.

2. O Sunday School, on the Lord's day, Thy friendship suits me well,
Both young and old will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.

3 O Sunday School, on the Lord's day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

4. O Sunday School, on the Lord's day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee.

5. O Sunday School, on the Lord's day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds black with rain,
I'll be in Sunday School.

6. O Sunday School, on the Lord's day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?
