Exodus 34:29-35 When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. 30 Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, and behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
This week we are going to break out of Dave’s series in 1 Peter to dive into Paul’s teaching on holiness and what it means for us when God says, “Be holy, for I am holy.” Paul is pleading with a wicked and immoral culture for them to separate themselves from their former lives of idol worship and fornication. True, the Corinthians had a more relational and public way of sinning, but our modern world isn’t far off when it comes to their level of depravity. So, how do we balance being in the world and not of it? How far should we separate from unbelievers? What constitutes worshipping an idol in the temple of God?
