Part 2 – HOLINESS – The Price & The Prize | Matt 15:19-20 | I Know Whom I Believed – Lesson 26 | David Adeniji
A visa is your entry pass into a foreign nation. Certificates are testaments of milestones achieved in your career. Examinations may not true tests of students’ ability, but they’re evidences of their commitment to building capacity over time.
Holiness is our Visa to heaven and Heaven is the ultimate Prize for holiness, just as the death and blood of Jesus was the Ultimate price for our holiness. Would you miss heaven for anything? Your pass has been delivered to you at new birth, but you need to receive it and play your part to use it. Holiness is the price. There’s a part of the deal you must keep.
Please check Heb 12:14 again and again. Bible says, without holiness no man shall see God, meaning you won’t make heaven without holiness. Does that make you sit up? We established in the last few classes that when you patronize sin, instead of fleeing every appearance of it according to 1Thess 5:22 , you’re are only struggling to be who you are not, and that’s a pity, because the Ultimate Prize – Heaven – is at stake. Now, check Rev 21:27, nothing unclean or defiling, shall enter therein.
And what are those things that defile? Matt 15:19 has the answer. All sin originate as thoughts, from the heart, and then gets implanted through the body. And how do you put your heart and your body under check? Again, Bible has the answer to that question. “Guard Your heart with all diligence” – Prov 4:23, so you can kill those thoughts and they never grow. How do you guard your heart? By staying with the word, and then….
Please make no mistakes, you can’t be holy without the Holy Spirit (Gal 5:16), the more of him you embrace, the holier you can be. You can’t be holy without the knowledge of the ‘Holy’, God Himself – Prov 9:10. So, quit trying to be holy by merely keeping laws, and never be deceived that you don’t have a part to play. Jesus Christ loved righteousness and hated iniquity. Don’t meddle with sin, however civilized and simplified they make it look. Sin is sin. Flee, and be holy! Because, this Holiness is your Visa to heaven. We will not miss it in Jesus Name.
