* Set Apart Sunday *



















CALLED TO BE HOLY IN AN UNHOLY WORLD



1 Corinthians 1:2 “ Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: ”


If the God Who has made us, has also called us to Himself, to set us apart to live holy in an unholy world, then that call will be extended and experienced in a context of a safety consistent with God’s nature and character.  Description of the Church.

CHURCH – prepositional prefix ek plus the verb kaleo = ekklesia = to be called out (of).


SANCTIFIED and HOLY – variations of the adjective hagiois = holy, set apart, consecrated.


May we all strive to be holy, to live a separated life from the world,  so others can see Jesus in us, we are a speaking vessel, in human form, for our lord, we have his written word, but we are to speak it to all we meet, may we see this day Holy, and may we worship our lord in a holy manner.

Praise be to the lord for his is worthy, we worship a very holy God, who cannot look on sin, so when we have unconfessed sin in our life, it breaks the bond of fellowship with the lord. I have prayed for you this morning, and prayed especially for our Jenny, how I miss her, her word of wisdom and her attitude of grace, and love for our lord. Pray for her when you think of her.


Have a very blessed Sunday as you go off to serve him in your local place of worship, may you lift up your voice, sing unto the lord, he loves you to sing to him, try it some time if you have not.
Love you all lots, talk to you later. Be blessed and do be a blessing.
Hugs, Barbara♥
