Youth Sunday School: The Hole in Our Holiness
9:30am – 10:10amCategory: Youth Sunday School | Coordinator: David Prussia
Hey teens, plan to attend our Youth Sunday School as we study from the book The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap Between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness by Kevin DeYoung. Bring a friend! Questions? Feel free to contact the Youth Director, Mr. David Prussia, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The hole in our holiness is that we don’t seem to care much about holiness. Or, at the very least, we don’t understand it. And we all have our reasons too: Maybe the pursuit of holiness seems legalistic. Maybe it feels like one more thing to worry about in your already overwhelming life. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life appears unspiritual. Or maybe you’ve been trying really hard to be holy and it’s just not working! Whatever the case, the problem is clear: too few Christians look like Christ and too many don’t seem all that concerned about it. This is a book for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a book about God's power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of transformation. Includes end-of-chapter discussion questions. 160 pages, softcover from Crossway. No book purchase required for this class.Table of Contents:
