Text: 1st Peter Chapter 1
While we are holy because Christ is holy we are also to remember that we have a responsiblity to personal holiness. In the first 12 verses we see that we have a living hope but begining in verse 13 we see the focus on personal holiness.
1) The Mandate
* Fix your hope fully on the grace - vs. 132) The Motivation
* Do not be conformed but obediant - vs. 14
* Be holy in all your conduct - vs. 15
* Why? Be holy for I am holy - vs. 16 - The measurement is God not man.
* We are not redeemed through gold or silver but the blood of Christ.3) The Method
* Our motivation is the the life and blood of Jesus Christ.
*The word of the Lord endures forever - vs. 22
* In chapter 2: 1-2 we see the method is to desire the pure milk of the word.
* See also 2 Timothy 2: 14-15 - we need to be able to rightly handle the word of God.
* 2 Timothy 3: 12-16 - All scripture is inspired by God and is profitable.

1 Corinthians 15:1-11
Our guest speaker is Rick Oglesby a former pastor, faculty member at Southeastern Bible College and past President of Carolina Bible College.
In this section of scripture we see the Good News of Jesus Christ. In vs. 8-11 we see insights into God's grace by looking at the personal statements of the apostle Paul.
* verse 8 - One who is like a miscarriage or an abortion. He was dead and useless untill God brought him out.
* in ourselves we are nothing but because of the grace of God and through the power of his son we have been made saints. Even though the Corinthian church was a very disfunctional fellowship, they were still saints!
* We need to remember that we are holy because he has made us holy.
