It’s our heart’s deepest longing and our true spiritual home. We were made for it. Twice. We entered the world at birth created in the image of a holy God. When we entered God’s kingdom at rebirth our “new self” was “created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24).
“Coming Home to Holiness” is about three things:
- A holy God. A God who is perfectly pure and sinless, who does only what is right and good.
- God’s plan to display his holiness in his creation. He calls us to identify with him in his holiness and he blesses us as we do.
- The path God laid out to lead us to holiness, a path paved by spiritual disciplines. As we practice the disciplines, we do what God asks us to do and then God does what only he can do to lead us to holiness.
