Some Thoughts On Holiness

Holiness has...
love for its essence
humility for its clothing,
the good of others as its employment
the honor of God as its end
-Nathanael Emmons-

Holiness is not freedom from temptation,
but power to overcome temptation.
-G. Campbell Morgan- 

I believe the holier a man becomes,
the more he mourns over the unholiness
which remains in him.

In holiness God is more clearly seen
than in anything else,
save in the person of Christ Jesus the Lord, 
of whose life such holiness is but a repetition

Holiness is goodness on fire.
-Walter Rauschenbusch-

Holiness is glory internal;
glory is holiness shining forth outwardly.
Robert Jamieson
