Prayer Challenge

I want to ask you to say this prayer out loud, if possible.

“I belong to God. I am a holy vessel because I have the Holy Spirit of the Living God. The Lord of Heaven and earth has said to me; “I declare you holy!”. I commit to start believing what He says. I AM HOLY! Remind me daily, Spirit of the Living God, to treat myself as holy, open my eyes to every scheme of The Enemy to treat me as if I'm not. You, God, are Holy. Your word is the truth. This day Father, I chose to believe you! I ask this in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for me so that I could be a coheir to the kingdom of God. Amen”

Follow Peace With All Men
The writer is referring to the trials which those whom he addressed were experiencing. Those trials seem to have arisen mainly from persecution, and he exhorts them to manifest a spirit of kindness toward all - even though they were engaged in persecuting them.

We are to make war with sin, but not with people

And Holiness - The Great Purpose of Life
  • Instead of yielding to contending passions and to a spirit of war
  • instead of seeking revenge on your persecutors and foes
  • make it rather your aim to be holy. 
  • Let that be the object of your pursuit; the great purpose of your life.

Without Which No Man Shall See the Lord
All will see the Lord in the day of judgment. In this verse, "shall see"  is used in the sense of:
  • being with the Lord
  • dwelling with the Lord
  • enjoying the Lord
