Scripture: 2 Peter 2:20-22 KJV
The real question for the church in this preparational season is: How important is it to pursue holiness? 2 Peter 2:20-22 says, “For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it has happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” As ministry arises from our relationship with Christ through the Holy Spirit, deepening our relationship is crucial. It is foundational! Pursuing holiness is the core issue because the promise of reigning in life is the outcome! Only God can overcome our greatest mountains so we must pursue Him! Returning to the mire is not an option!
