“The Call to Holiness” with Justin Thomas

“The Call to Holiness” with Justin Thomas

In Episode 3 of the CGN International Conference Podcast, Justin Thomas gives us a sneak peek into his upcoming message on 1 Peter, which he'll be delving into at this year’s CGN International Conference from June 23-26 at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa in Southern California. He focuses on the second half of chapter one, a passage rich with well-known texts, including Peter's quote: "The grass withers and the flower fades, but the word of the Lord endures forever."

This section ultimately calls us to holiness. Instead of merely describing what holiness looks like, Peter explains why holiness makes sense. Each reason he provides has natural implications for how we view holiness. For example, Peter contrasts the eternal, living word of God with other sources of normative behavior, emphasizing that holiness means living differently because we follow an eternal, timeless text rather than fleeting trends.

Additionally, Peter highlights that we now belong to a new lineage in Christ, with God as our Father. This new family comes with its own culture and expression, setting us apart from the world around us. Join us to explore these profound insights and more at the conference!
