Quote for the Week
"Holiness is every Christian's calling. It is not an option, but a requirement. God wants his children to live up to his standards and to do him credit in the eyes of the watching world, so he says explicitly to us all: 'Be holy, because I am holy' (1 Peter 1:16). Personal holiness is thus an issue for every believer without exception. 'I am really expected to be so much like Jesus Christ that others will know at once and unmistakably that I am a Christian' [Stephen Neill, Christian Holiness (London: Lutterworth Press, 1960), p. 114]. Each of us must reckon on going to school with Jesus our Lord to learn how to practice holiness."
