Cultural Holiness –  Jerry Bridges

Cultural Holiness – Jerry Bridges

Many Christians have what we might call a “cultural holiness”. They adapt to the character and behavior pattern of Christians around them. As the Christian culture around them is more or less holy, so these Christians are more or less holy. But God has not called us to be like those around us. He has called us to be like Himself. Holiness is nothing less than conformity to the character of God.

The Standard of Prayer – Charles H. Brent

The Standard of Prayer – Charles H. Brent

A low standard of prayer means a low standard of character and a low standard of service. Those alone labor effectively among men who impetuously fling themselves upward towards God.

Mirroring Christ – Robert Murray M’Cheyne

Our soul should be a mirror of Christ; we should reflect every feature: for every grace in Christ there should be a counterpart in us.
