Living a Sanctified Life - Part II



          THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL FLOURISHPs 92:12


GATEWAYS TO LIVING A SANCTIFIED LIFE
2Chronicles 30
:1 - 3
1 And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto the LORD God of Israel.
 2 For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month.
 3 For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.

Psalms 1:1-3 
 1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
1Corithians 15:33 - Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
