Worship The Lord In The Beauty Of Holiness
By G. Campbell Morgan
Genuine holiness is –
Not inability to sin, but ability not to sin.
Not freedom from temptation, but power to overcome temptation.
Not infallible judgment, but earnest and honest endeavor to follow the highest wisdom.
Not deliverance from infirmities of the flesh, but triumph over all bodily affliction.
Not exemption from conflict, but victory through conflict.
Not freedom from liability of falling, but gracious ability to prevent falling.
Not the end of progress, but deliverance from standing still.
What Christian would not desire the beauty and blessedness of such a life?
