"7 Steps To Holiness"
Psa 99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
by Pastor Tony Sutton

MORAL STANDARD

  • A) OUR STANDARD HAS SLIPPED FROM WHAT IT USED TO BE. EACH GENERATION SEEMS TO GET A LITTLE MORE LAXED. OUR WORD DOESN'T MEAN WHAT IT USED TO. OUR CONDUCT GETS MORE LIBERAL EVERY DAY. RESPECT FOR ELDERS HAS VANISHED, NOW THEY ARE POPS, OLD MAN, OLD WOMAN. THEY ARE OLD SCHOOL. BAD LANGUAGE HAS BECOME ACCEPTABLE.

SPIRITUAL STANDARD

  • A) A NEED TO BE SPIRITUAL HAS GONE. OTHER THINGS HAS TAKEN IT'S PLACE. MATERIAL POSSESSIONS HAVE REPLACED THE DESIRE TO BE HOLY. WE NEED TO WORK, MORE THAN WE NEED TO PRAY. WE NEED TO WORK MORE THAN WE NEED TO STUDY, OR VISIT. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT WE OBTAIN WORLDLY GAIN THAN HOLINESS. WE ARE SATISFIED WITH JUST A LITTLE OF GOD, BUT WE NEED A LOT OF THE WORLD.

PRAYER

  • A) WE CAN TALK FOR HOURS TO A FRIEND ABOUT THE RACES, WORK, TV SHOWS, FISHING, ETC... BUT IT ONLY TAKES ABOUT 2 MINUTES TO SAY WHAT WE NEED TO THE BEST FRIEND WE'VE EVER HAD. OUR PRAYER MOSTLY CONSIST OF OUR NEEDS AND WANTS WHEN IT SHOULD BE ABOUT PRAISE AND SOMEONE ELSE'S NEED.

BIBLE STUDY

  •  A) IF WE ATE PHYSICALLY LIKE WE DO SPIRITUALLY MANY WOULD BE ANOREXIC. MANY TODAY ARE PHYSICALLY HEALTHY, BUT ARE SPIRITUALLY STARVED TO DEATH. WE CAN WATCH TV FOR HOURS, PAY A FORTUNE FOR GUIDANCE FROM A LOST PERSON. SEEK HELP EVERYWHERE IMAGINABLE TO MAN, AND OUR BIBLE WILL LAY DUSTY ON THE TABLE, WITH ALL THE ANSWERS TO OUR PROBLEMS.

DESIRE TO WORSHIP

  • A) CHURCH IS A PLACE TO SOCIALIZE. WE CAN GO OR STAY AT HOME. A NEED TO WORSHIP IS SO SO.

DESIRE TO BE GODLY

  • A) WE WANT TO BE GODLY, BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF OUR TIME. WE WANT TO BE HOLY, BUT NOT BY LIVING GODLY.

SEEK GOD

  • A) WE DON'T SEEK GOD LIKE WE ONCE DID, IF HE DON'T COME IN THE NEXT FEW MINUTES THEN WE GIVE UP. FASTING IS A THING OF THE PAST FOR MANY. AT WHAT LENGTH ARE YOU WILLING TO GO TO IN-ORDER TO HAVE THE WALK WITH GOD THAT YOU SHOULD?
