Scripture Reading (Old Testament)  

Leviticus 11: 44 I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves about on the ground. 45 I am the LORD who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy.

Scripture Reading (New Testament)

1 Peter 1:14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man’s work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God. 22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.


Message:  “The Hazardous Gospel” by Barbara Shafer

The Gospel is Hazardous to our old way of life, calling us to a new life of:

  1. Personal Holiness
  2. Fear of God
  3. And Loving Others like Jesus Loved Them

The Gospel may be hazardous to the empty things of our past, but the new life ahead—with victory in Jesus, the beauty of holiness, and eternal life with our God who loves us—will be well worth the risk we took in being born-again.

Benediction—Barbara Shafer
