SMART Goal Setting

Thrive with Holy Living

Living a holy life, as advocated by Paul in his teachings throughout the scriptures, is a profound and transformative journey for believers. The apostle Paul, in various letters to early Christian communities, emphasizes the significance of holy living as an integral aspect of the Christian faith. This essay explores Paul's teachings on holy living and delves into the pastoral call for goal setting to promote a holy life within the congregation.

Ephesians 4:22-24 from the New Living Translation (NLT):

"throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy."

Paul's letters, such as those to the Corinthians, Ephesians, and Colossians, provide valuable insights into the principles of holy living. He often underscores the importance of personal righteousness, ethical conduct, and spiritual discipline. For instance, in Ephesians 4:22-24, Paul urges believers to "put off the old self" and to be renewed in the spirit of their minds, putting on the new self created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
