00:00 00:00

Main Idea: Purify yourself in preparation for Christ’s return.

Introduction:

  1. Abide in Christ
    • Continuing to trust
    • Continuing to take in God’s Word
    • Continuing to pray
    • Continuing to obey
  2. Practice Righteousness
    • Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God
    • 2 Peter 1:5-7 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
  3. Think deeply about the love of God the Father
    • New Birth
    • Adoption
    • New Family
    • Cleanse yourself from defilements

For prayer, repentance and growth

  • What attitudes stain my thinking?
  • What thoughts are unpleasing?
  • What actions are impure?
  • What assurance and hope make repentance and faith worth it?
