10 Lies People Believe about Purity

  • Dawn Wilson Crosswalk.com Contributing Writer

1. "God Doesn't Care What I Do."

The Praise Principle: God does care! Ephesians 1:4-6 says we are set apart by God “to the praise of his glorious grace.” We were chosen in Christ “to be holy and blameless in his sight.” God cares what we think, say and do. In the book of Leviticus, the Lord told His people, “Be holy, for I am holy” and the apostle Peter wrote to Christians, “As he who called you is holy, you also be holy.” We bring honor and praise to God in our holiness.

The Pleasing Principle: Jesus is our example. He said, “I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.” If pleasing the Father was important to Jesus, doesn’t it follow that God cares what we do? We should want to do all for the glory of God.
