"Battling Unbelief part 2 Pastor John Piper
A Passion for Practical Holiness
Why Do We Have a Passion for Holiness?It is the only pathway to eternal pleasure in God. No holiness,no heaven.
What do I Mean by Practical Holiness?
1. Obedience to…"
Pray that my faith remains strong and I faithfully spread the gospel.
I signed on with Jesus when I was a lad of 12, and I have tried to be a stalwart, sturdy Warrior for Christ for the last 17 years. I try steadfastly to adhere to the principles of the Bible and the gospel it teaches. I will worship God any where, any time, and on any day, but I keep the Seventh day as the Sabbath of the bible because that is what Scripture teaches.
About my Family
I have been married to a loving woman for forty one years and we have raised three wonderful children; two boys and one girl.
What has God called me to do.
The same as He has called all others to do; be a witness in the wilderness and spread the good news of the gospel. We all do that in the same and maybe some different ways, depending on where the Lord sends us and what He gives us to work with.
My Church, Ministry, or House Church
I do not Pastor a church, house or otherwise. My ministry is a Bible Study Ministry; I believe the Lord has called me to teach, and to exhort. It must be so, for that seems to be what He always sends me to do, in the congregation and in my home, and in witnessing.
I am sorry to say that I have no musical gifts, other than perhaps arranging it for others. I cannot sing, and although I play instruments, It has been a long time since I actually practiced with them.
The Name of My Christian Ministry
I have not gotten around to giving my ministry a name yet.

Why Do We Have a Passion for Holiness? It is the only pathway to eternal pleasure in God. No holiness,no heaven.
What do I Mean by Practical Holiness?
1. Obedience to God's Word in the everyday life. 2. The fruit of the Holy Spirit. 3. Genuine love for other people,
1 Thessalonians 3:12-13: May the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you; 13 so that He may establish your hearts without blame in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints.
Key Texts to Show that Practical Holiness is Necessary for Final Salvation
Hebrews 12:14: Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification (holiness) without which no one will see the Lord.
John 5:28-29: Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice, 29 and shall come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.
Galatians 6:8-9: For the one who sows to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary. James 2:17: Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.
1 John 2:4: The one who says, "I have come to know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
2 Thessalonians 2:13: But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth.
Matthew 6:15: But if you do not forgive men, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.
Romans 8:13: If you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
