Sermon Outline: John 17:16-19
Exposition: Jesus prays that the Father would sanctify the disciples – that means that he would set them apart for God’s purposes
Teaching & Application:
- All Christians should try to be “set apart” for God’s purpose.
- Why? It makes us available to God.
- Why? It makes us willing to serve.
- What does it mean to be “Set Apart”?
- Caring about the little things, doing the easy things
- Making space to serve God with time and money
- Holding the ground Christ has conquered in your life
- Listening to the Holy Spirit’s personal instructions
- Setting apart Christ as Lord in our hearts
- God’s Word – the Bible – is his means of setting us apart
- Holiness is impossible, pointless and dangerous, if it isn’t aimed at righteousness / love
- Holiness is a treasure bought by Christ and gifted to each Christian
