Lesson 99: Pursuing Holiness in the Community of Faith (Luke 17:1-6)

Related Media
There are a number of sweet moments in the gospels where you hear the disciples of Jesus really yearning for the right things, even when they might not know how/what exactly they are to pursue. As they listened to Him speak about sin, the dangers of causing others to sin, and offering forgiveness to those who do sin (even sin repeatedly!), they saw how far they were from where they needed to be and called out for an increase of faith. They had much to learn about what it meant to live in community with one another and found many of the teachings from their Lord a great challenge to obey. Pastor Daniel helps us, as fellow disciples today, understand the way forward in this through emphasizing the fact that the believer pursues holiness within the context of community; he then provides multiple ways for how to go about that pursuit.
