Verse of the Day (August 16, 2020) #BMSeminary – Happy Lord’s Day {these promises} The chain of OT quotations in 6:16-18 (see NIV text notes) stress the privilege of being the dwelling place of God (6:16) and the benefits of obeying the divine will (6:17-18). Having these promises, Christians must avoid every possible source of defilement in their whole personality, outwardly and inwardly, “body and spirit.” If they do this, they will be bringing their holiness nearer to completion “out of reverence for God.” Only at the second advent do believers become “blameless and holy” (1 Thess 3:13; cf. Phil 3:12-14). [Zondervan Study Bible]
