The Promise 3:16 - Parade of Hope

John 3:16"For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 12:1--2 "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind ..."

• God has desired us to be a holy, sanctified, and separate people.

• But not alone!

• The separate is from the world and not from people.

• We struggle with the overwhelming pull of the world to be like the world in our attitudes, actions and appearance.

• We renew our minds by filling them with things of the Lord, not things of the world.

• The more we parade the presence of Christ—listening, waiting, reading, praying—

• The more we want to be like him!

• We begin to desire holiness.

• It's an act of the will and an attitude of the heart that affect our outward actions.
