On holiness

Holiness is an inward “yes” to the voice of the Father which shapes the outward life.

Holiness is the passion of love, burning off the weight of self, freeing us to run the race set before us.

Holiness is constant submission to the call of Jesus to, “Follow,” no matter how long or hard the road.

Holiness is willing repentance when the Holy Spirit reveals a wrong in us, no matter how silly or small.

Holiness is nothing “off limits” to God, nothing stashed away, nothing held back.

Holiness is sacrifice of the dross and the dear alike in exchange for that which we could never deserve.

Holiness is delight in the heart of God at all cost, and it is priceless.
