It seems we often shy away from the topic of holiness. Perhaps it seems legalistic to us. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life seems like dependence on self. Maybe you’ve been trying really hard to be holy, and it’s not working!
How should we view holiness? "My fear is that as we rightly celebrate, and in some quarters rediscover, all that Christ has saved us from, we are giving little thought and making little effort concerning all that Christ has saved us to.
Shouldn’t those most passionate about the gospel and God’s glory also be those most dedicated to the pursuit of godliness?"
The author later states, "It’s not pietism [or] legalism … to take holiness seriously. It’s the way of all those who have been called to a holy calling by a holy God."
Join us as we study holiness together: what it is, what it’s not, how it is possible, and what our role is in the pursuit of it.
