The word holiness sounds so boring, bland, & uninteresting. It’s an old word. So we assume it’s irrelevant & has little to actually do with us.
Yet, when the Bible talks about holiness, it isn’t boring, bland, or uninteresting at all. The Bible describes the holy as those who are filled with the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, & so on. It is anything but boring.
What’s more. The Bible describes the godly or holy as those who “flourish in the courts of our God” and who are “ever full of sap & green” (Ps. 92:13–14). Godly people aren’t irrelevant; they are always relevant, because they are living to the hilt for the only things that matter. They are those who found joy in God & “at his right hand pleasures forevermore” (Ps. 16:11).
We want to be holy, more than anything else.
This summer, we are challenging the men to read sections of Faithfulness & Holiness by J.C. Ryle together as we strive after this goal.
So, here are the details.
1. We will gather 6 times from June–August on Tuesday nights to review what we’re reading. Below are the dates.
2. If you are interested & able to commit the dates above, sign up here.
