Holiness

A couple of quotes concerning holiness.



Henry Law, "Christ is All" 1854

"You pant to be conformed to the image of Christ. This is well. But holiness can be learned only at the cross. It is a sight of the dying Jesus--which kills lust. It is the shadow of the cross--which causes evil to wither."



Thomas Brooks, "The Crown and Glory of Christianity,or, HOLINESS, the Only Way to Happiness", 1662

"True holiness is diffusive. It extends, diffuses, and spreads itself all over the whole person . . . the head and the heart;
the lip and the life;
the inside and the outside.

The understanding is nourished on holiness,
the mind is adorned with holiness,
the will is bowed to holiness,
and all the affections are sprinkled, yes, clothed with holiness--

love is holy love,
grief is holy grief,
joy is holy joy,
sorrow is holy sorrow,
fear is holy fear,
care is holy care,
zeal is holy zeal.

Real holiness spreads itself over head, hand, heart, lip, and life."
