If you find it increasingly difficult to live as a Christian in these times, you are not alone. The fact is that the world is becoming more and more hostile to biblical Christianity. Sin is glorified, and depraved lifestyles are becoming more socially acceptable. The world tolerates all sorts of beliefs but is largely intolerant to the idea of an all-powerful God who hates sin and loves righteousness.
This difficulty trickles down to the private sphere. It has become harder to pursue personal holiness. The temptations—the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, the boastful pride of life (1 John 2:16)—have taken on new forms. Never before has there been unparalleled access to pornography. The internet, although a source of resources for growth in our Christian life, has also become an effective avenue for self-promotion, materialism, and a host of other worldviews which can feed and cultivate the remaining sinful flesh in us. If we are not careful, we can gradually become numb to sin and drift away from what God has intended for us.
Set Apart: The Believer’s Call for Personal Holiness emphasizes God’s commandment to pursue personal holiness by rejecting and putting sin to death in our mortal bodies, and by living according to what God has called us to do. We can accomplish these only by the grace of God. It aims to equip believers from local churches with biblical principles and practical applications of how personal holiness can be pursued in daily living.
