SCRIPTURAL GUIDANCE TO THE PURSUIT OF HOLINESS:
integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. Psalm 25:21
has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do
justly, and to love mercy, and to
walk humbly with your God? Mi. 6:8
in the LORD, and do good; so shalt you dwell in the land, and verily you shall be fed. Delight yourself
also in the LORD; and he shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way unto
the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:3-5
law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. Psalm 37:31
the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. Psalm 37:37
all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. Psalm 38:9
LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how
frail I am. Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at
his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. Surely every man walks in a vain show: surely they are disquieted
in vain: he heaps up riches, and knows not who shall gather them. And now, Lord, what wait I for?
My hope is in thee. Psalm 39:4-7
Blessed is that
man that makes the LORD his trust, and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. Psalm 40:4
delight to do your will, O my God: yea, your law is within my heart. Psalm 40:8
the hart pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul after you, O God. Psalm 42:1
O God, you are my God; early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for
you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psalm 63:1
have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My
flesh and my heart fails: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. For, lo, they that
are far from thee shall perish: You have destroyed all them that go a whoring from You. But it is good
for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
Teach me your way, O LORD;
I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with
all my heart: and I will glorify Your name for evermore. Psalm 86:11-12
teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. And let the beauty of the LORD our
God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
Psalm 90:12, 17.
I will sing of mercy and judgment:
unto thee, O LORD, will I sing. I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when will You come unto me? I
will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the
work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. A froward heart shall depart from me:
I will not know a wicked person. Whoso privily slanders his neighbor, him will I cut off:
him that has an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. Psalm 101 1-5.
will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall
be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. Psalm 104: 33-34
Praise ye the
LORD. Blessed is the man that fears the LORD, that delights greatly in His commandments. Psalm 112:1
Portions of Psm. 119 read:
1. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. With my whole heart have
I sought thee: O let me not wander from Your commandments. Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with
the whole heart. 10. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against You. 15. I will meditate
in Your precepts, and have respect unto Your ways. 27. Make me to understand the way
of Your precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works. 34. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your
law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart. 37. Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in Your
way. 40. Behold, I have longed after Your precepts: quicken me in Your righteousness.
45. And I will walk at liberty: for I seek Your precepts. 48. My hands also will I lift up unto
Your commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in Your statutes. 50. This is my comfort in
my affliction: for Your word has quickened me. Psalm 119:1, 10-11, 15, 27, 34, 37, 40, 45, 48, 50.
highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keeps his way preserves his soul. Proverbs 16:17
way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right. Proverbs 21:8
With my soul have I desired You in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek You
early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
And the work of righteousness shall
be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever. Isa. 32:17
If you turn away your foot from the sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My holy day;
and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shalt honor him, not doing thine
own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt
you delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed
you with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it. Isa. 58:13-14.
are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Mth. 5:6
make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his
fruit. Mth. 12:33
A good man out
of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings
forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45
But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never
thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
For if the firstfruit be holy, the
lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. Rom. 11:16
night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
Know you not that you are the temple
and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy;
for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. I Cor. 3:16-17
therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. I Cor. 10:31
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare
are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations,
and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought
to the obedience of Christ; II Cor. 10:3 & 5
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such
there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another,
envying one another. Gal, 5:22-26
And be renewed
in the spirit of your mind; and that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Heb. 12:14
He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly
with your God? Micah 6:8
