perfect.” – Genesis 17:1b

BIBLE PASSAGE: Psalm 24: 3-5

INTRODUCTION

In our last session, we considered why believers must be holy and how to live

holy. If we are not holy, we cannot walk with God (Amos 3:3). As Christians, we

are commanded to put on the new man created in righteousness and holiness

(Ephesians 4:24). Today, we shall about some benefits and rewards of holiness as

well as the dangers of unholy living.

LESSON OUTLINES

1. BENEFITS AND REWARDS OF HOLINESS

2. DANGERS OF UNHOLY LIVING

BENEFITS OF HOLINESS

A holy believer receives classified information from God (Psalm 25:14; John

15:14-15). God builds a wall of protection around such a believer (Psalm 34:7;

Job 1:8-10). He will also have peace with his enemies, (Proverbs 16:7). He will

receive divine provision and long life (Psalm 37:25; Proverbs 3:12). Living holy

enables every believer to enjoy God’s presence and lving ever with God in

eternal life (Psalm 15:1-3).

The rewards attached to holiness include: answered prayers (Luke 1:13), secured

future (Isaiah 3:10), divine health (Exodus 15:26), overflowing blessings

(Deuteronomy 28:1-2), victorious living (Deuteronomy 28:7), promotion and

supernatural anointing (Hebrew 1:9).

DANGERS OF UNHOLY LIVING

There are grave dangers for any believer that does not live a holy life. Such

include:

1. Rejection and exclusion from heaven and all the eternal rewards (Hebrews

12:14; John 14:1-2)

2. Prevention from possessing one’s possessions. (Obadiah 17; Isaiah 59:1-2).

1. Deletion of one’s name from the book of life (Revelations 20:15).

2. An unholy person will be useless in the service of the Lord (2 Timothy 2:19-

22).

CONCLUSION

An individual that fears God and lives righteously shall be exalted. Disobedience

to His instructions to divine rejection, waste of life and destiny, eternal rejection

and condemnation etc. (1Samuel 15:22-23; Revelations 22:14-15).
