One of the most insane statements in all the Bible is, “Be holy.” Well, I say insane because man, that seems really, really hard! Being a faithful follower is hard. Most of the time, it’s really, really hard.
Take some time (15 minutes) to listen to this lesson from Randy Harris on doing hard things because following Jesus can be really, really hard. The context for this lesson comes out of Matthew 5:38-48. Verse 48 is when Jesus says, “Be perfect as your heavenly father is perfect.”
If we are going to live as losers in this world, then we MUST confront what it means and how it alters how we live. It may start with holiness in our Father first.
