The Bible was written for the believer. If you live as a believer you must live by God’s standard. Holiness is the character and nature of God. You will become an outcast when you become holy! No longer will your family and friends accept you. Use the following scriptures below to help reinforce your walk in holiness. Trust, believe, and have faith that as you walk out, and establish living a holy life style that God is beside you every step of the way. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
If you choose not to live a holy life you will not see God
37”If you love your father or mother more than you love Me, you are not worthy of being Mine; or if you lover your son or daughter more than Me, you are not worthy of being Mine. 38If you refuse to take up your cross and follow Me, you are not worthy of being Mine. 39If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for Me, you will find it.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
9Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. 11Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Peter 2:1-3
1So get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealously, and all unkind speech. 2Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, 3now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.
5So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. 6Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming. 7You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world. 8But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. 9Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. 10Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like Him. 11In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave or free. Christ is all that matters, and He lives in all of us.
30And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, He has identified you as His own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.
31Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
3Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.4Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God.5You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
6Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey Him.7Don’t participate in the things these people do.8For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! 9For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.
10Carefully determine what pleases the Lord.11Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them.12It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret.13But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them,
Results of the Sinful Nature
19When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures,20idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division,21envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
