Holy War – 1 Peter 2:11-12
Christians are in a Holy War, a war for our own holiness. It’s a battle, against our own fleshly desires. It’s a fight, against our own sinful passions. In this sermon Pastor David examines Peters call for Godly Living. Christians fight to turn away from evil and do good for our own sake, for the sake of others and for the glory of God. If we are to faithfully proclaim the excellence of Christ we must live honorable lives.
1 Peter 2:11–12 Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
