Believer’s holiness has been a strong issue to deliberate on. The doctrine of believer’s holiness has been misconstrued in the sense that many do not believe that a believer is holy. In the same vein, many are of the view that a believer in Christ is holy. So in order to do bring out the right doctrine, we should be looking at the scripture. When it comes to doctrine, whatever the scripture says stands to be final. However, care should be taken in order not to misinterpret the scripture. Jesus speaking to the Jews and His audience declared thus as stated below.
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.”
The error in most practices and belief we have in the church comes from the inability to understand the scripture rightly. For this reason, Apostle Paul instructed his son in the Lord, Pastor Timothy as declare below.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Believer’s Holiness Must Taught:
As regards to believers in Christ he went further to say this below.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
It is important that everybody should be saved in Christ but it is very much important that even as they are saved they should come to the knowledge of the truth. Therefore, being saved without having the knowledge of the truth is a problem. It will eventually be like though the person is saved not his life is like that of an unsaved person. For the lack of understanding of the scripture, many who are holy are saying they not.
This teaching the Assurance Of Holiness has more. Please listen and share it among people.
