Holier with thou [Sermon]


It’s not really a popular topic. Saying we’re in the process of being made holy (or being made like Christ) can come across sounding superior, or that we’re better than we are.

And yet, the Bible says Jesus people are “being made holy.” What does that mean? And, more specifically, what is the role that other people play in your own holiness?

Further still, what role do you play in the process of someone else’s holiness?

In this sermon from November 7, 2021 based on Hebrews 10:1-25, I take us through the text to discuss the once-for-all sacrifice of Jesus, how we are ‘perfect’ before God, and how we are being made holy, with a specific eye to the role other people play in that process.

The sermon is called “Holier with thou.”

Here is the audio version:

In addition, you can access the extra “growing deeper” background content as a part of The Pulse Podcast with Matthew Ruttan by going here (or by finding it wherever you subscribe to podcasts — iTunes (Apple), Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher or TuneIn). It’s called “Sanctification, the last sacrifice, and the role other people play in your own holiness.”
