Part 9: Perfecting Holiness
Series: Practical Goals For Spiritual People
Stuart Briscoe
Hebrews 12:14

To the secular person holiness is at the best irrelevant ("holy cow") and at the worst hypocritical ("holy Joe"). To many Christians the doctrine of holiness goes no further than the terms "Holy Bible" and "Holy Communion" and may even stir thoughts of negative, unattractive living. But the Scriptures insist that holiness is a must for believers.

I. An Explanation of Holiness.

A. The holiness of God. Isaiah 6:1-7
1. He is separate from the human.

2. He is separate from the earthly.

3. He is separate from the sinful.

B. The holiness of things.
1. Separated from common use.

2. Consecrated to divine use.
For example:
a. Holy place. Exodus 26:33

b. Sabbath. Exodus 20:8

c. Vessels. 1 Kings 8:4
