Holiness quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#1. Holiness appeared to me to be of a sweet, pleasant, charming, serene, calm nature; which brought an inexpressible purity, brightness, peacefulness and ravishment to the soul. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Holiness quotes by Dave Hunt
#2. We desperately need to understand something of the magnitude of sin, of evil, and of gross wickedness in this world if we are to appreciate our redemption. God's love, grace, and mercy shine all the brighter against the awful reality of evil. Indeed, the very existence of evil is a powerful proof of God's existence and holiness. #Quote by Dave Hunt
Holiness quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#3. God created us to be worshipers because it is right that he be known, loved and worshiped. This isn't because he is needy and wishes someone would tell him how special he is. No, it's because he is perfect and the worship of his perfection is holiness in action. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Holiness quotes by Francis Chan
#4. Draw close to Him and let your marriage be the overflow of that. When things are right with God, your marriage can actually become what it was designed to be. Peace comes when both parties come to an agreement. Agree on God - agree on His holiness and the supremacy He deserves in your lives. #Quote by Francis Chan
Holiness quotes by James Carroll
#5. Asceticism was not necessary for holiness. #Quote by James Carroll
Holiness quotes by David F. Wells
#6. God's holiness, then, is not only the opposite of evil; it is the measure by which we know evil to be evil. #Quote by David F. Wells
Holiness quotes by Martin Luther
#7. We rightly confess, in our articles of belief, that there is a holy church; for it is invisible, dwelling in a place that none can attain unto, and therefore her holiness cannot be seen; for God doth so hide and cover her with infirmities, with errors, with divers forms of the cross and offences, that according to the judgment of reason, it is nowhere to be seen. #Quote by Martin Luther
Holiness quotes by Gregory Palamas
#8. Even when your body does nothing, sin can be active in your mind. When your soul inwardly repulses the evil one's attack by means of prayer, attention, remembrance of death, godly sorrow and mourning the body, too, takes its share of holiness, having acquired freedom from evil actions. This is what the Lord meant by saying that someone who cleans the outside of the cup has not cleansed it inside, but clean the inside and the whole cup will be clean #Quote by Gregory Palamas
Holiness quotes by Richard Baxter
#9. The name of this city much helpeth Jew and Gentile to see the state of peace, for this is called Jerusalem, and that in Canaan hath Christ destroyed: this name should clearly have taught bot h the Hebrews not to look and pray daily for to return to Canaan, and pseduo-catholics not to fight for special holiness there (658-9). #Quote by Richard Baxter
Holiness quotes by Mark Buchanan
#10. Ironic that those most holy are least likely to see themselves that way. #Quote by Mark Buchanan
Holiness quotes by Mother Teresa
#11. Holiness grows so fast where there is kindness. The world is lost for want of sweetness and kindness. Do not forget we need each other. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Holiness quotes by J.I. Packer
#12. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Holiness quotes by Thomas Brooks
#13. Ambition is a gilded misery, a secret poison, a hidden plague, the engineer of deceit, the mother of hypocrisy, the parent of envy, the original of vices, the moth of holiness, the blinder of hearts, turning medicines into maladies, and remedies into diseases. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Holiness quotes by John O'Donohue
#14. I am sure of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Holiness quotes by Mary Oliver
#15. But I also say this: that light is an invitation to happiness, and that happiness, when it's done right, is a kind of holiness, palpable and redemptive. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Holiness quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#16. In the Cross is salvation; in the Cross is life; in the Cross is protection against our enemies; in the Cross is infusion of heavenly sweetness; in the Cross is strength of mind; in the Cross is joy of spirit; in the Cross is excellence of virtue; in the Cross is perfection of holiness. There is no salvation of soul, nor hope of eternal life, save in the Cross. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Holiness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#17. Related to this first reason is the fear that a passion for holiness makes you some kind of weird holdover from a bygone era. As soon as you share your concern about swearing or about avoiding certain movies or about modesty or sexual purity or self-control or just plain godliness, people look at you like you have a moralistic dab of cream cheese on your face from the 1950s. Believers get nervous that their friends will call them legalistic, prudish, narrow-minded, old fashioned, holier-than-thou - or worst of all, a fundamentalist. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Holiness quotes by Iain H. Murray
#18. From the experience of these years Dr. Lloyd-Jones was immovably confirmed in a truth which he had first seen in the New Testament. It was that evangelism is pre-eminently dependent upon the quality of the Christian life which is known and enjoyed in the church. #Quote by Iain H. Murray
Holiness quotes by Oswald Chambers
#19. In our abandonment we give ourselves over to God just as God gave Himself for us, without any calculations. The consequences of abandonment never enter into our outlook because our life is taken up in Him. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Holiness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#20. Holiness is the sum of a million little things - the avoidance of little evils and little foibles, the setting aside of little bits of worldliness and little acts of compromise, the putting to death of little inconsistencies and little indiscretions, the attention to little duties and little dealings, the hard work of little self-denials and little self-restraints, the cultivation of little benevolences and little forbearances. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Holiness quotes by Rajneesh
#21. That is again the same story played on a more subtle level. That's what the religious people have been doing down the ages - pious egoists they have been. They have made their ego even more decorated; it has taken the color of religion and holiness. Your ego is better than the ego of a saint; your ego is better, far better - because your ego is very gross, and the gross ego can be understood and dropped more easily than the subtle. The subtle ego goes on playing such games that it is very difficult. One will need absolute awareness to watch it. #Quote by Rajneesh
Holiness quotes by K.P. Yohannan
#22. We pretend with a spiritual life we don't live, a peace we don't experience and a holiness and commitment we don't possess ... We will never make any progress in becoming more like Jesus unless we permit God to cut us open, search our hearts, try us, know our thoughts and then change us from the inside. Only then can we become real according to the Word of God. #Quote by K.P. Yohannan
Holiness quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#23. Of courtesy, it is much less Than courage of heart or holiness, Yet in my walks it seems to me That the Grace of God is in courtesy. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Holiness quotes by Lynn Austin
#24. When we feel unworthy in His presence it's because we glimpse His holiness. #Quote by Lynn Austin
Holiness quotes by Joyce Meyer
#25. When Jesus comes to live in our hearts, the seed of holiness is planted. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Holiness quotes by Samuele Bacchiocchi
#26. It is only when a Christian recognizes that drinking is not only a harmful habit, but also a transgression of a God-given principle to ensure our health and holiness, that he or she will feel compelled to abstain from intoxicating substances. #Quote by Samuele Bacchiocchi
Holiness quotes by Mother Teresa
#27. Prayer is the breath of life to our soul; holiness is impossible without it #Quote by Mother Teresa
Holiness quotes by Gerhard Tersteegen
#28. Let none, however difficult the circumstances, consider himself as debarred from the way of holiness. Have we but God and the cross of Christ, we have the means for becoming altogether holy in our walk and conversation. What dungeon is there that can shut us out from this? Only let us use the present location and means faithfully and truly, taking them from God's hand, and we shall find him able to free us from all that is really a hindrance. Let us each one desire to be a saint in his own place and calling, instead of building 'castles in the air' of future holiness. #Quote by Gerhard Tersteegen
Holiness quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#29. Without holiness you cannot talk of God. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Holiness quotes by Mark Batterson
#30. The goal of marriage is not happiness, it is holiness ... There is no mechanism whereby God can sanctify a person more than having them live in close proximity to another imperfect person.
... Our fundamental problem is that we are selfish. Marriage is the means whereby God eradicates our selfishness because it is not about "me" anymore, i t is about "we. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Holiness quotes by Anne Lamott
#31. Laughter is a bubbly, effervescent form of holiness #Quote by Anne Lamott
Holiness quotes by David Brainerd
#32. Thirsting desires and longings possessed my soul after perfect holiness. God was so precious to my soul that the world with all its enjoyments appeared vile. I had no more value for the favor of men than for pebbles. #Quote by David Brainerd
Holiness quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#33. We are women, and my plea is Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Holiness quotes by Ibn Ata Allah
#34. Know that the science of unveiling has no end to it, for it consists in the journey of the intellect in the stations of Majesty, Beauty, Sublimeness, Grandeur, and Holiness ... He to whom the mysteries of La ilaha illa'llah are revealed draws near to God, and his worship of God becomes sincere. He does not turn to anyone but to Him, nor does he have hope in or fear other than Him, nor does he see harm or benefit except as coming from Him. He abandons whosoever is not He and rids himself of inward and outward associationism (shirk). #Quote by Ibn Ata Allah
Holiness quotes by Nancy B. Brewer
#35. Her voice is as soft as a bubbling brook and there is an undeniable holiness surrounding her. #Quote by Nancy B. Brewer
Holiness quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#36. Absolute Purity, unsullied even by the shadow of sin. "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (1Jo 1:5). Holiness is the very excellency of the divine nature: the great God is "glorious in holiness" (Exo 15:11). Therefore do we read, "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity" (Hab 1:13). As #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Holiness quotes by Billy Graham
#37. Christians should seek after holiness - without which no man shall see the Lord. Let us seek ardently the kind of life that reflects the beauty of Jesus and marks us as being what saints ought to be! #Quote by Billy Graham
Holiness quotes by Robert Barron
#38. The holiness of God is like a white light: pure, simple, complete. But when that light shines, as it were, through the prisms of individual human lives, it breaks into an infinite variety of colors ... each one reveals a unique dimension of the divine holiness. #Quote by Robert Barron
Holiness quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#39. We punish the body and strip the earth. And we do it in pursuit of a so-called holiness that smacks of the bogus, that denies the gifts of God, that makes us marauders on the earth. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Holiness quotes by Erwin Raphael McManus
#40. We have defined holiness through what we separate ourselves from rather than what we give ourselves to. I am convinced the great tragedy is not the sins that we commit, but the life that we fail to live. You #Quote by Erwin Raphael McManus
Holiness quotes by Charles Kingsley
#41. The health of a church depends not merely on the creed which it professes, not even on the wisdom and holiness of a few great ecclesiastics, but on the faith and virtue of its individual members. #Quote by Charles Kingsley
Holiness quotes by Louis De Montfort
#42. Chosen soul, how will you bring this about? What steps will you take to reach the high level to which God is calling you? The means of holiness and salvation are known to everybody, since they are found in the Gospel; the masters of the spiritual life have explained them; the Saints have practiced them ... These means are: sincere humility, unceasing prayer, complete self-denial, abandonment to Divine Providence, and obedience to the will of God. #Quote by Louis De Montfort
Holiness quotes by Andrew Murray
#43. No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Holiness quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#44. We are more than conquerors through him that loved us. We shall cast down the powers of darkness which are in the world, by our faith, and zeal, and holiness; we shall win sinners to Jesus, we shall overturn false systems, we shall convert nations, for God is with us, and none shall stand before us. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Holiness quotes by His Holiness Younus AlGohar
#45. #QuoteoftheDay 'Religions without their spiritual systems are monsters.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar #Quote by His Holiness Younus AlGohar
Holiness quotes by Michael O'Neal
#46. Perhaps as this hostile world oppresses us and tries to lead us away from God's holy ways, He sends angels on missions of mercy to open our eyes to pathways of holiness. What better way can angels minister to those who are to "inherit salvation" than to facilitate this very thing? (An Angel's View, pp. 69-70). #Quote by Michael O'Neal
Holiness quotes by Garey Gordon
#47. After character becomes imbued with conscious principles of love, integrity, and faith, it opens the door for purity and holiness to converge at the portals of the soul like sentinels guarding against any counter attacks from the ego. #Quote by Garey Gordon
Holiness quotes by J.I. Packer
#48. Robert Murray McCheyne declared: My people's greatest need is my personal holiness. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Holiness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#49. The fear of a man is a snare. But the fear of God is a safe haven. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Holiness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#50. Holiness has to do with more than mere acts. Our motives must be holy, that is, arising from a desire to do something simply because it is the will of God. Our thoughts should be holy, since they are known to God even before they are formed in our minds. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Holiness quotes by Richard J. Foster
#51. In "The Cost of Discipleship" Dietrich Bonhoeffer makes it clear that grace is free, but it is not cheap. The grace of God is unearned and unearnable, but if we ever expect to grow in grace, we must pay the price of a consciously chosen course of action which involves both individual and group life. Spiritual growth is the purpose of the Disciplines.

It might be helpful to visualize what we have been discussing. Picture a long, narrow ridge with a sheer drop-off on either side. The chasm to the right is the way of moral bankruptcy through human strivings for righteousness. Historically this has been called the heresy of moralism. The chasm to the left is moral bankruptcy through the absence of human strivings. This has been called the heresy of antinomianism. On the ridge there is a path, the Disciplines of the spiritual life. This path leads to the inner transformation and healing for which we seek. We must never veer off to the right or to the left, but stay on the path. The path is fraught with severe difficulties, but also with incredible joys. As we travel on this path the blessing of God will come upon us and reconstruct us into the image of Jesus Christ. We must always remember that the path does not produce the change; it only places us where the change can occur. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Holiness quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel
#52. There are no two hours alike. Every hour is unique and the only one given at the moment, exclusive and endlessly precious. Judaism teaches us to be attached to holiness in time; to learn how to consecrate sanctuaries that emerge from the magnificent stream of a year. #Quote by Abraham Joshua Heschel
Holiness quotes by Ellen F. Davis
#53. Careful practical work is the best expression of our freedom and safeguard of our sanity. In a healthy society, such work is the means most consistently available for people to practice holiness of life, to imitate God's enabling and sustaining care for the world. #Quote by Ellen F. Davis
Holiness quotes by Marco Rubio
#54. In Cuba, His Holiness [Pope Francis] won't find a government that protects its people and their God-given rights. Instead, he will find a regime that oppresses people and hinders progress, both socially and politically. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Holiness quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#55. I warn every reader of this [article] to beware of quack medicines in religion. Beware of supposing that penitence, reformation, formality, and priestcraft[40] can ever give you peace with God. They cannot do it. It is not in them. The man who says they can must be ignorant of two things: he cannot know the length and breadth of human sinfulness; he cannot understand the height and depth of the holiness of God. There never breathed the man or woman on earth who tried to cleanse himself from his sins and in so doing obtained relief. #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Holiness quotes by Mark Driscoll
#56. In what ways has God changed you to become more holy because of Jesus' blessing? How is God inviting you to make further changes in your life to live at greater levels of obedience and holiness to reflect Christ more? #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Holiness quotes by Irene Gut Opdyke
#57. We did not speak of what we had seen. At the time, to speak of it seemed worse than sacrilege: We had witnessed a thing so terrible that it acquired a dreadful holiness. It was a miracle of evil. It was not possible to say with words what we had witnessed, and so we kept it safely guarded until the time we could bring it out, and show it to others, and say, 'Behold. This is the worst thing man can do'. #Quote by Irene Gut Opdyke
Holiness quotes by Criss Jami
#58. Conscious minds can, at the most, comprehend that the whole idea of a 'God' is his superiority, his omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience; and therefore, at the least, desire him, someone far greater than themselves. #Quote by Criss Jami
Holiness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#59. Stressing the necessity of personal holiness should not undermine in any way our confidence in justification by faith alone. The best theologians and the best theological statements have always emphasized the scandalous nature of gospel grace and the indispensable need for personal holiness. Faith and good works are both necessary. But one is the root and the other the fruit. God declares us just solely on account of the righteousness of Christ credited (imputed) to us (2 Cor. 5:21). Our innocence in God's sight is in no way grounded in works of love or acts of charity. Whereas a Catholic might answer the question "What must I do to be saved?" by saying, "Repent, believe, and live in charity,"7 the apostle Paul answers the same exact question with, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household" (Acts 16:31). Getting right with God is entirely and only dependent upon faith.8 #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Holiness quotes by Brennan Manning
#60. For the Christian one dislocating, self-impoverishing hour spent with a child living in a broken-down dump is worth more than all the burial mounds of rhetoric, all the enfeebled good intentions, all the mumbling and fumbling and tardiness of those Christians who are so busy cultivating their own holiness that they cannot hear the anguished cry of the child in the slum. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Holiness quotes by Lynn Austin
#61. If you truly understood the holiness of God, you would have a proper attitude about yourself. #Quote by Lynn Austin
Holiness quotes by Beryl Dov
#62. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama My Ass
When empathy becomes a trend,
we haven't reached a higher level of consciousness,
just a higher level of competition. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Holiness quotes by Mother Teresa
#63. Holiness is not a luxury for the few; it is not just for some people. It is meant for you and for me and for all of us. It is a simple duty, because if we learn to love, we learn to be holy. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Holiness quotes by C.F.W. Walther
#64. In God, holiness and righteousness are the characteristics of the one Sublime, Sovereign Being, to whom no one can issue a command or lay down a law. In #Quote by C.F.W. Walther
Holiness quotes by Joe Thorn
#65. To say that God is love is not to romanticize his character or soften his holiness. In fact, the love of God means very little apart from his holiness and justice. The love of God is magnified in that he loves the unholy and pours out blessings upon those deserving just punishment for sin. #Quote by Joe Thorn
Holiness quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#66. Repentance and desires after holiness never be separated. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Holiness quotes by John O'Donohue
#67. May your body be blessed.
May you realize that your body is
a faithful and beautiful friend of your soul.
And may you be peaceful and joyful and
recognize that your senses are sacred thresholds.
May you realize that holiness is mindful gazing,
feeling, hearing and touching.
May your senses gather you and bring you home.
May your senses always enable you to celebrate
the universe and the mystery and possibilities
in you presence here.
May the Eros of the Earth bless you. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Holiness quotes by J. Thomas
#68. According to His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, when you're happy everything in life is bearable and grief and stress are just passing emotions. Happiness is not something that you feel after something good happens. It is a state of living that is present whether good things are happening or not, whether you're suffering or not. #Quote by J. Thomas
Holiness quotes by Todd Agnew
#69. A human encounter with holiness is devastating. It refuses to allow us to be impressed with the things of the world we've been chasing. It refuses to allow us to remain comfortable in our sin. It refuses to allow us to remain on the throne of our lives. And it leads us to a relationship with the only One who can perfectly love us, who can forgive all our sins, and who can make us into His likeness. Our encounter with His holiness is our devastation. And our devastation is our salvation. #Quote by Todd Agnew
Holiness quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#70. Nothing but a miracle of grace can lead to the saving of any sinner. Oh, my reader, be not deceived on this vital matter; to mortify the lusts of the flesh, to be crucified unto the world, to overcome the Devil, to die daily unto sin and live unto righteousness, to be meek and lowly in heart, trustful and obedient, pious and patient, faithful and uncompromising, loving and gentle; in a word, to be a Christian, to be Christ-like, is a task far, far beyond the poor resources of fallen human nature. #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Holiness quotes by Matt Redman
#71. As we begin to face up to the holiness of God, our lives resound with that very same anthem, here and now upon the earth. #Quote by Matt Redman
Holiness quotes by Megan McKenna
#72. The Resurrection is not a single event, but a loosening of God's power and light into the earth and history that continues to alter all things, infusing them with the grace and power of God's own holiness. It is as though a door was opened, and what poured out will never be stopped, and that door cannot be closed. #Quote by Megan McKenna
Holiness quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#73. Nobody wanted to hear about all the Preterite, the many God passes over when he chooses a few for salvation. William argued holiness for these "second Sheep," without whom there'd be no elect. You can bet the Elect in Boston were pissed off about that. And it got worse. William felt that what Jesus was for the elect, Judas Iscariot was for the Preterite. Everything in the Creation has its equal and opposite counterpart. How can Jesus be an exception? could we feel for him anything but horror in the face of the unnatural, the extracreational? Well, if he is the son of man, and if what we feel is not horror but love, then we have to love Judas too. Right? How William avoided being burned for heresy, nobody knows. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Holiness quotes by Andrew Murray
#74. The complaints of many Christians as to lack of joy and strength, as to failure and want of growth, are simply owing to this - the place God gave Holiness in His call they have not given it in their response. God and they have never yet come to an agreement on this. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Holiness quotes by Mary Oliver
#75. This is, I think, what holiness is:
the natural world, where every moment is full
of the passion to keep moving.
Inside every mind there's a hermit's cave full of light,
full of snow, full of concentration.
I've knelt there, and so have you,
hanging on to what you love,
to what is lovely.
Mary Oliver, At the Lake #Quote by Mary Oliver
Holiness quotes by Madi Merek
#76. Her entire life, she'd been told sin was wrong, a black and white interpretation of what is evil and what is holy in the world - colored like a priest's robe and collar - but she never believed it to be true. Sin was colorful: scarlet like rose blood, azure like skin deprived oxygen, violet as bruises, jade as rot; a colorful contradiction to the darkness and blinding light all are taught sin and holiness to be. #Quote by Madi Merek
Holiness quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#77. In God's school, the teachers must be masters of the art of holiness. If we teach one thing by our lips and another by our lives, those who listen to us will say, "Physician, heal thyself." "Thou sayest, 'Repent.' Where is thine own repentance? Thou sayest, 'Serve God, and be obedient to His will.' Do you serve Him? Are you obedient to His will?" An unholy ministry would be the derision of the world, and a dishonour to God. "Be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord." He will speak through a fool if he be but a holy man. I do not, of course, mean that God chooses fools to be His ministers; but let a man once become really holy, even though he has but the slenderest possible ability, he will be a more fit instrument in God's hand than the man of gigantic acquirements, who is not obedient to the divine will, nor clean and pure in the sight of the Lord God Almighty. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Holiness quotes by J.C. Ryle
#78. To become a monk, or a nun, or to join a House of of Mercy, is not the high road to sanctification. True holiness does not make a Christian evade difficulties, but face and overcome them. Christ would have His people show that His grace is not a mere hot-house plant, which can only thrive under shelter, but a strong, hardy thing which can flourish in every relation of life. It is doing our duty in that state to which God has called us
like salt in the midst of corruption, and light in the midst of darkness
which is a primary element in sanctification. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Holiness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#79. So we see that God has made provision for our holiness. Through Christ He has delivered us from sin's reign so that we now can resist sin. But the responsibility for resisting is ours. God does not do that for us. To confuse the potential for resisting (which God provided) with the responsibility for resisting (which is ours) is to court disaster in our pursuit of holiness. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Holiness quotes by Hannah More
#80. Bible Christianity is what I love ... a Christianity practical and pure, which teaches holiness, humility, repentance and faith in Christ; and which after summing up all the Evangelical graces, declares that the greatest of these is charity . #Quote by Hannah More
Holiness quotes by Charles Colson
#81. Heroism is an extraordinary feat of the flesh; holiness is an ordinary act of the spirit. One may bring personal glory; the other always gives God glory. #Quote by Charles Colson
Holiness quotes by Pope John Paul II
#82. The sacraments infuse holiness into the terrain of man's humanity: they penetrate the soul and body, the femininity and masculinity of the personal subject, with the power of holiness. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Holiness quotes by Franz Kafka
#83. Even the merest gesture is holy if it is filled with faith. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Holiness quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#84. The ways of the world exalt themselves against God. They sometimes look rational and appealing to the most ernest disciple but Christ says to us then what He said to His disciples long ago, when many of them had given u pin disgust, "Do you also want to leave me?" If we answer as PEter did, "Lord to whom else shall we go? Your words are words of eternal life," our rebel thoughts are captured once more. The way of holiness is again visible. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Holiness quotes by Seyi Ayoola
#85. Holiness grants us access to God's blessings, for without it,ACCESS DENIED!!! #Quote by Seyi Ayoola
Holiness quotes by Randy Alcorn
#86. The Spirit's work is not to make us holy, in order that we may be pardoned; but to show us the cross, where the pardon is to be found by the unholy; so that having found the pardon there, we may begin the life of holiness to which we are called. - Horatius Bonar #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Holiness quotes by John Piper
#87. God communicates himself to the understanding of the creature, in giving him the knowledge of his glory; and to the will of the creature, in giving him holiness, consisting primarily in the love of God: and in giving the creature happiness, chiefly consisting in joy in God.108 These are the sum of that emanation of divine fullness called in Scripture, the glory of God. The first part of this glory is called truth, the latter, grace, #Quote by John Piper
Holiness quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#88. II. Their people are an excellent and happy people. God has renewed them, and instamped his own image upon them, and made them partakers of his holiness. They are more excellent than their neighbors, Prov. xii. 26. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Holiness quotes by Andrew Murray
#89. [T]he elements of holiness in us are these, each corresponding to some special aspect of God's holiness: deep Restfulness (ch. 3), humble Reverence (ch. 4), entire Surrender (ch. 5), joyful Adoration (ch. 6), simple Obedience (ch. 7). These all prepare for the Divine Indwelling (ch. 8). [ ... ]
It is simply impossible for God to dwell or rule when self is on the throne. [ ... ]
Just when we see that there is nothing in us to admire or rest in, God sees in us everything to admire and to rest in, because there is room for Himself. [ ... ]
Lowliness and holiness. Keep fast hold of the intimate connection. Lowliness is taking the place that becomes me; holiness, giving God the place that becomes Him. If I be nothing before Him, and God be all to me, I am in the sure path of holiness. Lowliness is holiness, because it gives all the glory to God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Holiness quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#90. It is nothing short of a transformed vision of reality that is able to see Christ as more real than the storm, love more real than hatred, meakness more real than pride, long-suffering more real than annoyance, holiness more real than sin. - Discipline #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Holiness quotes by Tim O'Brien
#91. How do you generalize? War is hell, but that's not the half of it, because war is also mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun. War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead. The truths are contradictory. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Holiness quotes by Pope Francis
#92. Do not be content to live a mediocre Christian life: walk with determination along the path of holiness. #Quote by Pope Francis
Holiness quotes by John Henry Newman
#93. To obtain the gift of holiness is the work of a life. #Quote by John Henry Newman
Holiness quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#94. The essence of becoming a disciple is, to put it colloquially, becoming like the people we hang out with the most. Just as the single most formative experience in our lives is our membership in a nuclear family, so the main way we grow in grace and holiness is through deep involvement in the family of God. Christian community is more than just a supportive fellowship; it is an alternate society. And it is through this alternate human society that God shapes us into who and what we are. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Holiness quotes by John Angell James
#95. Holiness is happiness; and the more you have of the former, the more you will undoubtedly enjoy of the latter. #Quote by John Angell James
Holiness quotes by R.C. Sproul
#96. In salvation we are not only saved from sin and damnation; we are saved unto holiness. The goal of redemption is holiness. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Holiness quotes by Edward McKendree Bounds
#97. Prayer is the lungs through which holiness breathes. Prayer is not only the language of spiritual life, but also makes its very essence and forms its real character. O for a faith that will not shrink though pressed by every foe; That will not tremble on the brink of any earthly woe. Lord, give us such a faith as this ... whatever may come ... #Quote by Edward McKendree Bounds
Holiness quotes by George Cardinal Pell
#98. Living the good life as created beings depends on living within the limits and according to the truths of the human condition. Purity of heart and the capacity to channel desires toward personal self-mastery in holiness are part of the high calling of the Christian life. These remain necessities, despite the promises of a false humanism that claims that human nature has neither limits nor boundaries, being infinitely plastic and malleable -- a vain and counterproductive attempt to liberate humans from guilt. #Quote by George Cardinal Pell
Holiness quotes by Thomas C. Oden
#99. God loves us toughly enough not to allow us to be happy with our sins. The recollection of sin rightly brings misery of conscience. How else could moral awareness be saved from sentimentality? The deepest human happiness, we learn, is grounded in holiness - God's holy love and our responsive attempts to reflect it fittingly. #Quote by Thomas C. Oden
Holiness quotes by Indonesia123
#100. When we live holy we will glorify self but when we glorify God we will live holy. #Quote by Indonesia123
Holiness quotes by Therese Of Lisieux
#101. Holiness is a disposition of the heart that makes us humble and little in the arms of God, aware of our weakness, and confident - in the most audacious way - in His Fatherly goodness. #Quote by Therese Of Lisieux
Holiness quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#102. It is good for God's people to be put in a place of longing so they feel a slight desperation. Only then can we be empty enough and open enough to discover the holiness we were made for. When we are stuffed full of other things and never allow ourselves to be in a place of longing, we don't recognize the deeper spiritual battle going on. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Holiness quotes by Roland Allen
#103. The Spirit is Love expressed towards man as redeeming love, and the Spirit is truth, and the Spirit is the Holy Spirit. Redemption is inconceivable without truth and holiness. #Quote by Roland Allen
Holiness quotes by Jean-Marie Deguignet
#104. I could not help weeping with him - not over my own fate which, however clearly laid out, was just as sad as his, but over the injustices, the iniquities, and the crimes to which the exploited poor are always and everywhere subjected to, by a mob of scoundrels and trash who deck themselves out in many-colored robes, in helmet and plumed hats, in gold and silver embroideries, and take themselves titles of majesty, holiness, eminence, lordship, in order to fleece, bleed, and slaughter the poor. #Quote by Jean-Marie Deguignet
Holiness quotes by Randy Alcorn
#105. We see that the world seeks happiness instead of holiness. Therefore, we assume we should do the opposite. But we're wrong. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Holiness quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel
#106. There is a passion and drive for cruel deeds which only the awe and fear of God can soothe; there is a suffocating selfishness in man which only holiness can ventilate. #Quote by Abraham Joshua Heschel
Holiness quotes by Henry R. Van Til
#107. Christians are called unto holiness and are to be engaged actively in self-purification. They are to walk in good works which have been prepared before, unto which they have been called. But how is it possible to visualize this activity of believers outside of their culture? Is holiness restricted to the life of the soul? #Quote by Henry R. Van Til
Holiness quotes by N. T. Wright
#108. The church is not simply a religious body looking for a safe place to do its own thing within a wider political or social world. The church is neither more nor less than people who bear witness, by their very existence and in particular their holiness and their unity (Colossians 3), that Jesus is the world's true lord, ridiculous or even scandalous though this may seem. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Holiness quotes by N. T. Wright
#109. The church belongs at the very heart of the world, to be the place of prayer and holiness at the point where the world is in pain - not to be a somewhat "religious" version of the world, on the one hand, or a detached, heavenly minded enclave, on the other. It #Quote by N. T. Wright
Holiness quotes by Mary Rose O'Reilley
#110. If we remember that the German word for holy (selig) is the root of our word silly, we may be forced to make some pertinent connections. #Quote by Mary Rose O'Reilley
Holiness quotes by J.I. Packer
#111. [Sanctification] is a process that includes on the one hand medication and diet (in the form of biblical instruction and admonition coming in various ways to the heart), and on the other hand tests and exercises (in the form of internal and external pressures, providentially ordered, to which we have to make active response). The process goes on as long as we are in the world, which is something that God decides in each case. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Holiness quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#112. Whoever does not believe in God will not believe in the people of God. But he who believes in the people of God will also see their holiness, even if he did not believe in it at all before. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Holiness quotes by Adam Clarke
#113. The Bible is proved to be a revelation from God, by the reasonableness and holiness of its precepts; all its commands, exhortations, and promises having the most direct tendency to make men wise, holy, and happy in themselves, and useful to one another. #Quote by Adam Clarke
Holiness quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#114. God sees us perfect in His Son while He disciplines and chastens and purges us that we may be partakers of His holiness. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Holiness quotes by J.I. Packer
#115. It is extraordinary how little the New Testament says about God's interest in our success, by comparison with the enormous amount that it says about God's interest in our holiness, our maturity in Christ, and our growth into the fullness of His image. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Holiness quotes by Mikhail Khorev
#116. I became a Christian at the age of seventeen. I made a very conscious act of commitment and my only desire was to be kept in purity and holiness throughout the whole time of my earthly pilgrimage. I didn't choose Christ's narrow path for the riches, fame, or comfortable life it would bring, for I had experienced several times in my family before I became a Christian that true discipleship would mean a life of persecution. #Quote by Mikhail Khorev
Holiness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#117. To walk in the highway of holiness, one must have faith in God. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Holiness quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#118. Discipleship is the pursuit of holiness and happiness. It is the path to our best and happiest self. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Holiness quotes by R.C. Sproul
#119. He is the author of more than sixty books, including The Holiness of God, Chosen by God, The Invisible Hand, Faith Alone, A Taste of Heaven, Truths We Confess, The Truth of the Cross, and The Prayer of the Lord.

Holiness quotes by Timothy Keller
#120. What keeps the marriage going is your commitment to your spouse's holiness. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Holiness quotes by Ed Stetzer
#121. To engage people in culture we must remember that holiness is separation from sin, not separation from sinners. #Quote by Ed Stetzer
Holiness quotes by Criss Jami
#122. The sacrifices we make to stay healthy, to look good, the tasty foods we skip, the guilt trips, the exercising - all these things require great discipline, care, and even a paradoxical, self-denying self-love of sorts in order to be properly executed. However it is regretful that so many of us today are not as passionate about our spiritual holiness as we are about our physical health. They are indeed both important - we should worship in every aspect of our lives - and one even, in a sense, entails the other. Although, this disproportion in said priorities is still very much expected: we humans have always taken a liking to trendiness and the temporal side of things, doing what is judged vainly in the eyes of man before that which is judged vitally and eternally in the eyes of God (i.e. "cleaning the outside of one's cup while leaving a filthy inside"). But in a way, it all goes to show that the man who fully hates discipline hates himself fully; for within the spirit is where The Holy One judges true wellness or malady. #Quote by Criss Jami
Holiness quotes by Vinoba Bhave
#123. Gross and subtle, pure and mixed, simple and complex - in the end that there is no place where God is not. In every atom, He alone is present. From the ant to the universe, He spreads. The Lord who cares equally for all, the compassionate one who is all knowledge, tenderness, skill, holiness and beauty - He stands on all sides everywhere. #Quote by Vinoba Bhave
Holiness quotes by N.D. Wilson
#124. Assumption Two: God only cares about spiritual things. To be honest, I don't even know what this means, but those elusive spiritual things have been helping Christians cop out of true holiness for centuries.

We are all like accountants with wizard-like abilities, funneling our choices and goals and actions through shell corporations and off-shore banks of unrighteousness. God only cares about spiritual things? His kingdom is a spiritual kingdom? Are you kidding me? God only cares how we emote at him?

That's part of it, sure, but I was pretty sure that He made physical animals and a physical man and gave him a physical job. I was pretty sure that He made a physical tree with physical fruit and told that physical man not to eat it or he would physically die. He physically ate it anyway and now we physically go into the physical ground, physically rot, and become physical plant and physical worm food.

And because of this incredibly physical problem, He made things even more clear when His own Son took on physical flesh to lead a physical life that lead to a physical cross where He physically absorbed our curse, was physically tortured, and bought you and bought me and bought this whole physical world with His physical blood. If He'd wanted a spiritual kingdom, He could have saved Himself a huge amount of trouble (to say nothing of making the Greek philosophers and medieval gnostics a lot happier), by just skipping Christmas and the Crucifixion. #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Holiness quotes by John Murray
#125. The presence of sin in the believer involves conflict in his heart and life. If there is remaining, indwelling sin, there must be the conflict which Paul describes 7:14ff. It is futile to argue that this conflict is not normal. If there is still sin to any degree in one who is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, then there is tension, yes, contradiction, within the heart of that person. Indeed, the more sanctified the person is, the more conformed he is to the image of his Savior, the more he must recoil against every lack of conformity to the holiness of God. The deeper his apprehension of the majesty of God, the more persistent his yearning for the attainment of the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus, the more conscious will he be of the gravity of the sin which remains and the more poignant will be his detestation of it. #Quote by John Murray
Holiness quotes by Mark Batterson
#126. Jesus Himself was untamed. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Holiness quotes by Gregory Of Nyssa
#127. If we truly think of Christ as our source of holiness, we shall refrain from anything wicked or impure in thought or act and thus show ourselves to be worthy bearers of his name. For the quality of holiness is shown not by what we say but by what we do in life. #Quote by Gregory Of Nyssa
Holiness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#128. Not only is holiness the goal of your redemption, it is necessary for your redemption #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Holiness quotes by William Monahan
#129. I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of god. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here [mind] and here [heart] and what you decide to do every day will make you a good man ... or not. #Quote by William Monahan
Holiness quotes by Henry Cloud
#130. People who apologize quickly may act like they are sorry or as if they are interested in holiness, but they are really leading someone on. They may say all the words, and some are taken in by their tears and "sorrow." But in reality they are more sorry about getting caught. They do not change, and the future will be exactly like the past. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Holiness quotes by Henry Edward Manning
#131. You may have living and habitual conversation in heaven, under the aspect of the most simple, ordinary life. Remember that holiness does not consist in doing uncommon things, but in doing every thing with purity of heart. #Quote by Henry Edward Manning
Holiness quotes by Randy Alcorn
#132. The fear of God is a profound respect for His holiness, which includes a fear of the consequences of disobeying Him. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Holiness quotes by John Piper
#133. What is sin? It is the glory of God not honored. The holiness of God not reverenced. The greatness of God not admired. The power of God not praised. The truth of God not sought. The wisdom of God not esteemed. The beauty of God not treasured. The goodness of God not savored. The faithfulness of God not trusted. The commandments of God not obeyed. The justice of God not respected. The wrath of God not feared. The grace of God not cherished. The presence of God not prized. The person of God not loved. That is sin. #Quote by John Piper
Holiness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#134. We cannot effectively pursue holiness without the Word of God stored up in our minds where it can be used by the Holy Spirit to transform us.
Jerry Bridges, The Discipline of Grace, 180 #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Holiness quotes by John O'Donohue
#135. The body is your only home in the universe. It is your house of belonging here in the world. It is a very sacred temple. To spend time in silence before the mystery of your body brings you toward wisdom and holiness. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Holiness quotes by Saint Maximilian Kolbe
#136. Everyone cannot become a genius but the path of holiness is open to all ... It is untrue that the saints were not like us. They too experienced temptations, they fell and rose again; they experienced sorrow that weakened and paralyzed them with a sense of discouragement ... They did not trust themselves but placed all their trust in God. #Quote by Saint Maximilian Kolbe
Holiness quotes by Sophie Swetchine
#137. The root of sanctity is sanity. A man must be healthy before he can be holy. We bathe first, and then perfume. #Quote by Sophie Swetchine
Holiness quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#138. After many years of great mercy, after tasting of the powers of the world to come, we still are so weak, so foolish; but, oh! when we get away from self to God, there all is truth and purity and holiness, and our heart finds peace, wisdom, completeness, delight, joy, victory. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Holiness quotes by Thomas Merton
#139. The wise man has struggled to find You in his wisdom, and he has failed. The just man has striven to grasp You in his own justice, and he has gone astray.
But the sinner, suddenly struck by the lightning of mercy that ought to have been justice, falls down in adoration of Your holiness: for he had seen what kings desired to see and never saw, what prophets foretold and never gazed upon, what the men of ancient times grew weary of expecting when they died. He has seen that Your love is so infinitely good that it cannot be the object of a human bargain. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Holiness quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#140. Think about it: it is easy to see God's beauty in a glorious sunset or in ocean waves crashing on a beach. But can you find the holiness in a struggle for life? #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Holiness quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#141. Expecting perfection from ourselves or others is not what holiness is about. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Holiness quotes by Mother Teresa
#142. We must have a real living determination to reach holiness. 'I will be a saint' means I will despoil myself of all that is not God; I will strip my heart of all created things; I will live in poverty and detachment; I will renounce my will, my inclinations, my whims and fancies, and make make myself a willing slave to the will of God. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Holiness quotes by Tony Reinke
#143. Our humbling experience of sin is a mark of maturity. To be humbled by sin is to be marked by grace. Christian holiness is not the eradication of the sin nature, at least not on this side of eternity. #Quote by Tony Reinke
Holiness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#144. Don't let anyone fool you. The chase after holiness is a tough race to run, especially when it comes to obedience. You have to have conviction (belief) in the necessity of obeying God's will as well as confidence (faith) in God's promises. If you don't have both of those, you can't persevere in this difficult chase. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Holiness quotes by Mary Oliver
#145. All things are inventions of holiness. Some more rascally than others. I #Quote by Mary Oliver
Holiness quotes by Karl Barth
#146. There does not exist any more a holy mountain or a holy city or holy land which can be marked on a map. The reason is not that God's holiness in space has suddenly become unworthy of Him or has changed into a heathen ubiquity. The reason is that all prophecy is now fulfilled in Jesus, and God's holiness in space, like all God's holiness, is now called and is Jesus of Nazareth. #Quote by Karl Barth
Holiness quotes by William Law
#147. As a good Christian should consider every place as holy, because God is there, so he should look upon every part of his life as a matter of holiness, because it is offered unto God. The profession of a clergyman is a holy profession, because it is a ministration in holy things, an attendance at the alter. But worldly business is to be made holy unto the Lord, by being done as a service unto Him, and in conformity to His Divine will. #Quote by William Law
Holiness quotes by James E. Faust
#148. The dignity of self is greatly enhanced by looking upward in the search for holiness. Like the giant trees, we should reach up for the light. The most important source of light we can come to know is the gift of the Holy Ghost. It is the source of inner strength and peace. #Quote by James E. Faust
Holiness quotes by Pope John Paul II
#149. Holiness is not reserved for a small number of exceptional persons. It is for everyone. It is the Lord who brings us to holiness when we are willing to collaborate in the salvation of the world for the glory of God, despite our sin and our sometimes rebellious temperament. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Holiness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#150. The holiness of solitude is the gift of creativity. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Holiness quotes by Adam Clarke
#151. This perfection is the restoration of man to the state of holiness from which he fell, by creating him anew in Christ Jesus, and restoring to him that image and likeness of God which he has lost. #Quote by Adam Clarke
Holiness quotes by John Calvin
#152. He regards it as the highest insult for the wicked to boast of His covenant while profaning His sacred Name by their whole lives. #Quote by John Calvin
Holiness quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#153. Let the separation between you and the world be final and irreversible. Say, 'Here I go for Christ and His Cross, for the faith of the Bible, for the laws of God, for holiness, for trust in Jesus; and never will I go back, come what may. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Holiness quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#154. Every man finds a sanction for his simplest claims and deeds, in decisions of his own mind, which he calls Truth and Holiness. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Holiness quotes by J.C. Ryle
#155. I have no desire to make an idol of holiness. I do not wish to dethrone Christ, and put holiness in His place. But I must candidly say, I wish sanctification was more thought of in this day than it seems to be, and I therefore take occasion to press the subject on all believers into whose hands these pages may fall. I fear it is sometimes forgotten that God has married together justification and sanctification. They are distinct and different things, beyond question, but one is never found without the other. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Holiness quotes by C.S. Lewis
#156. The holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Holiness quotes by Sunday Adelaja

Holiness quotes by J.I. Packer
#158. The pursuit of holiness is thus no mere private hobby, nor merely a path for a select few, but a vital element in Christian mission strategy today. The world's greatest need is the personal holiness of Christian people. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Holiness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#159. We have to make holiness our creed #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Holiness quotes by Robert L. Millet
#160. I believe the message in the hymn "Rise Up, O Men of God" (Hymns, no. 324) is a plea, a call, a divine invitation for us to rise above the telestial tinsel of our time; to deny ourselves of ungodliness and clothe ourselves in the mantle of holiness; to reach and stretch and grasp for that spiritual direction and sacred empowerment promised to the Lord's agents, to those charged to act in the name of our Principal, Jesus Christ; and to point the way to salvation and deliverance and peace in a world that finds itself enshrouded in darkness, a world that yearns for spiritual leadership. #Quote by Robert L. Millet
Holiness quotes by Tim Stafford
#161. circumstances - not necessarily in holiness and radiant light, but often in confusion among people with deep problems. #Quote by Tim Stafford
Holiness quotes by Joseph Choi
#162. Holiness makes sin useless because it is truthful, just, faithful, righteous, godly, loving, meek, and enduring. #Quote by Joseph Choi
Holiness quotes by Evans Biya
#163. Holiness is not something done but a lifestyle. #Quote by Evans Biya
Holiness quotes by William Greenough Thayer Shedd
#164. Total depravity means the entire absence of holiness, not the highest intensity of sin. A totally depraved man is not as bad as he can be, but he has no holiness, that is, no supreme love of God #Quote by William Greenough Thayer Shedd
Holiness quotes by David Michie
#165. Surely you're not saying that the life of a human and the life of an animal are of the same value?' he ventured.
'As humans we have much greater potential, of course,' His Holiness replied. 'But the way we all want very much to stay alive, the way we cling to our particular experience of consciousness-in this way human and animal are equal. #Quote by David Michie
Holiness quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#166. Praise adds nothing to your holiness, nor does blame take anything from it. You are what you are, and you cannot be said to be better than you are in God's sight. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Holiness quotes by Jim Caviezel
#167. I always believed in God, I would go to mass most of the time, but I had no idea of the calling to holiness. #Quote by Jim Caviezel
Holiness quotes by George Eliot
#168. The Vicar's talk was not always inspiriting: he had escaped being a Pharisee, but he had not escaped that low estimate of possibilities which we rather hastily arrive at as an inference from our own failure. #Quote by George Eliot
Holiness quotes by Oswald Chambers
#169. My unrestrained commitment of myself to God gives the Holy Spirit the opportunity to grant to me the holiness of Jesus Christ. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Holiness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#170. As we grow in holiness, we grow in hatred of sin; and God, being infinitely holy, has an infinite hatred of sin. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Holiness quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#171. Holiness does not consist in never having erred or sinned. Holiness increases the capacity for conversion, for repentance, for willingness to start again and, especially, for reconciliation and forgiveness. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Holiness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#172. W. S. Plumer said, "We never see sin aright until we see it as against God...All sin is against God in this sense: that it is His law that is broken, His authority that is despised, His government that is set at naught...Pharaoh and Balaam, Saul and Judas each said, 'I have sinned'; but the returning prodigal said, 'I have sinned against heaven and before thee'; and David said, 'Against Thee, Thee only have I sinned. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Holiness quotes by Frances J Roberts
#173. ONLY in the release of the seen do you lay hold on the unseen, My little one. Heaven waits for those who are no longer bound to earth. The degree to which bondages are exchanged for liberties while still in the flesh is in proportion to the extent to which eternal values are held in higher esteem that worldly success and possessions. If a man loves Me, he will hold his soul more precious than his body and will pursue holiness at the expense of wealth; for to follow after that which perishes is to forfeit the prize of the high calling in Christ. #Quote by Frances J Roberts
Holiness quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#174. It is a proper and excellent thing for infinite glory to shine forth; and for the same reason, it is proper that the shining forth of God's glory should be complete; that is, that all parts of his glory should shine forth, that every beauty should be proportionably effulgent, that the beholder may have a proper notion of God.
Thus it is necessary, that God's awful majesty, his authority and dreadful greatness, justice, and holiness, should be manifested. But this could not be, unless sin and punishment had been decreed; so that the shining forth of God's glory would be very imperfect, both because these parts of divine glory would not shine forth as the others do, and also the glory of his goodness, love, and holiness would be faint without them; nay, they could scarcely shine forth at all. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Holiness quotes by Samuel Henry Miller
#175. Worship is the highest act of which a person is capable. It not only stretches us beyond all the limits of our finite selves to affirm the divine depth of mystery and holiness in the living and eternal God, but it opens us at the deepest level of our being to an act which unites us most realistically with our fellow people. #Quote by Samuel Henry Miller
Holiness quotes by Criss Jami
#176. The more we love God, the more unpleasant sin becomes. #Quote by Criss Jami
Holiness quotes by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
#177. You spoke of the saints a moment ago. You spoke of them as though they were men and women of exceptional, inhuman holiness, so far above us mere mortal men that they could only be revered from afar. Never could they be looked to as examples - never role models for us to emulate. I understand your feelings. It pains me to admit that we, the church, have too often failed you by perpetuating this inaccurate image of the saints. In truth, they are very much human, very much like you and me. They lived in the world with the same fears, temptations, and failings that everyone must. So you see, what made them saints was not the absence of fear or failure, but instead their willing surrender to the grace of God, a grace available to all who come to the Cross. Yes, that does mean suffering and perhaps death, but for Jesus Christ they were prepared to suffer still more. #Quote by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
Holiness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#178. To be successful in life and in ministry, you must have the power of holiness. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Holiness quotes by Alan Chambers
#179. It says in this world you will have trouble in John 16:33 but take heart you can have peace in me because I've overcome the world. I think for believers you know we are helping people pursue holiness through a relationship with Christ, through biblical community in their local church, through honesty and transparency, sharing what it is that troubles them, being accountable. #Quote by Alan Chambers
Holiness quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#180. I felt sorry for the inhabitants and went into the forest to admonish the wolf in God's name not to eat any more sheep. I called him, he came - and do you know what his answer was? 'Francis, Francis,' he said, 'do not destroy God's prescribed order. The sheep feeds on grass, the wolf on sheep - that's the way God ordained it. Do not ask why; simply obey God's will and leave me free to enter the sheepfolds whenever I feel the pinch of hunger. I say my prayers just like Your Holiness. I say: "Our Father who reignest in the forests and hast commanded me to eat meat, Thy will be done. Give me this day my daily sheep so that my stomach may be filled, and I shall glorify Thy name. Great art Thou, Lord, who hast created mutton so delicious. And when the day cometh that I shall die, Grant, Lord, that I may be resurrected, and that with me may be resurrected all the sheep I have eaten - so that I may eat them again!"' That, Brother Leo, is what the wolf answered me. #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Holiness quotes by John Crotts
#181. The degree of a person's amazement about God's grace directly corresponds to their apprehension of the absolute holiness of God and the filthy depths of our rebellion against his will and his ways. #Quote by John Crotts
Holiness quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#182. If I am to love the Lord my God with all my mind, there will not be room in it for carnality, for pride, for anxiety, for the love of myself. How can the mind be filled with the love of the Lord and have space left over for things like that? #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Holiness quotes by Jonathan Sacks
#183. But beyond a basic minimum, the relationship between income and happiness is slight. Research bears out Maslow's analysis that the higher needs are love and belonging, esteem and self-actualisation. The most significant determinants of happiness are strong and rewarding personal relationships, a sense of belonging to a community, being valued by others and living a meaningful life. These are precisely the things in which religion specialises: sanctifying marriage, etching family life with the charisma of holiness, creating and sustaining strong communities in which people are valued for what they are, not for what they earn or own, and providing a framework within which our lives take on meaning, purpose, even blessedness. #Quote by Jonathan Sacks
Holiness quotes by Diana Butler Bass
#184. Here in the labyrinth, I struggle to find words to describe what I feel. Up on the mountaintop, I knew the language to describe God: majestic, transcendent, all-powerful, heavenly Father, Lord, and King. In this vocabulary, God remains stubbornly located in a few select places, mostly in external realms above or beyond: heaven, the church, doctrine, or the sacraments. What happens in the labyrinth seems vague, perhaps even theologically elusive.

Like countless others, I have been schooled in vertical theology. Western culture, especially Western Christianity, has imprinted a certain theological template upon the spiritual imagination: God exists far off from the world and does humankind a favor when choosing to draw close. Sermons declared that God's holiness was foreign to us and sin separated us from God. Yes, humanity was made in God's image, but we had so messed things up in the Garden of Eden that any trace of God in us was obscured, if not destroyed. Whether conservative or liberal, most American churches teach some form of the idea that God exists in holy isolation, untouched by the messiness of creation, and that we, God's children, are morally and spiritually filthy, bereft of all goodness, utterly unworthy to stand before the Divine Presence. In its crudest form, the role of religion (whether through revivals, priesthood, ritual, story, sacraments, personal conversion, or morality) is to act as a holy elevator between God above and those muddling around d #Quote by Diana Butler Bass
Holiness quotes by R.C. Sproul
#185. It's dangerous to assume that because a person is drawn to holiness in his study that he is thereby a holy man. There is irony here. I am sure that the reason I have a deep hunger to learn of the holiness of God is precisely because I am not holy. I am a profane man - a man who spends more time out of the temple than in it. But I have had just enough of a taste of the majesty of God to want more. I know what it means to be a forgiven man and what it means to be sent on a mission. My soul cries for more. My soul needs more. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Holiness quotes by Adrian Rogers
#186. Holiness is not the way to Christ. Christ is the way to holiness. #Quote by Adrian Rogers
Holiness quotes by Martin Buber
#187. One should hallow all that one does in one's natural life. One eats in holiness, tastes the taste of food in holiness, and the table becomes an altar. One works in holiness, and raises up the sparks which hide themselves in all tools. One walks in holiness across the fields, and the soft songs of all herbs, which they voice to God, enter into the song of our soul. #Quote by Martin Buber
Holiness quotes by Jerry Bridges
#188. Reflect on these words from John Brown, a nineteenth-century Scottish pastor and theologian: Nothing is so well fitted to put the fear of God, which will preserve men from offending him, into the heart, as an enlightened view of the cross of Christ. There shine spotless holiness, inflexible justice, incomprehensible wisdom, omnipotent power, holy love. None of these excellencies darken or eclipse the other, but every one of them rather gives a lustre to the rest. They mingle their beams, and shine with united eternal splendour: the just Judge, the merciful Father, the wise Governor. Nowhere does justice appear so awful, mercy so amiable, or wisdom so profound. #Quote by Jerry Bridges

Holiness quotes by Karen Armstrong
#190. I believe in holiness and sacredness in other people. It doesn't mean that the clouds part and I see God. That's a juvenile way of thinking about it. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Holiness quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#191. If Christ has died for me, I cannot trifle with the evil that killed my best Friend. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Holiness quotes by Dainin Katagiri
#192. Consideration of others extends beyond just other human beings to include all things - tables, cushions, even toilet paper. We must be considerate of all things and treat them with great appreciation and respect. #Quote by Dainin Katagiri
Holiness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#193. If a person thinks continually about the purity and holiness of God, then that holiness will begin to show itself in that person's life. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Holiness quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#194. If you want to be popular, preach happiness. If you want to be unpopular, preach holiness. #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
Holiness quotes by Juan De La Cruz
#195. I came into the unknown
and stayed there unknowing
rising beyond all science.

I did not know the door
but when I found the way,
unknowing where I was,
I learned enormous things,
but what I felt I cannot say,
for I remained unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

It was the perfect realm
of holiness and peace.
In deepest solitude
I found the narrow way:
a secret giving such release
that I was stunned and stammering,
rising beyond all science.

I was so far inside,
so dazed and far away
my senses were released
from feelings of my own.
My mind had found a surer way:
a knowledge of unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

And he who does arrive
collapses as in sleep,
for all he knew before
now seems a lowly thing,
and so his knowledge grows so deep
that he remains unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

The higher he ascends
the darker is the wood;
it is the shadowy cloud
that clarified the night,
and so the one who understood
remains always unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

This knowledge by unknowing
is such a soaring force
that scholars argue long
but never leave the ground.
Their knowledge always fails the source:
to understand unknowing,
rising beyond all science.

This knowledge is supreme
crossing a blazing hei #Quote by Juan De La Cruz
Holiness quotes by George Whitefield
#196. It is an undoubted truth that every doctrine that comes from God, leads to God; and that which doth not tend to promote holiness is not of God. #Quote by George Whitefield
Holiness quotes by Thomas Brooks
#197. Preach the gospel to yourself, because as you consider who you are in light of God's perfect goodness, holiness and peace, you must soften toward others. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Holiness quotes by Andrew Murray
#198. In linking holy and without blemish (or without blame) so closely, the Holy Spirit would have led us to seek for the embodiment of holiness as a spiritual power in the blamelessness of practice and of daily life. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Holiness quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#199. Piety and holiness of life will propitiate the gods.
[Lat., Deos placatos pietas efficiet et sanctitas.] #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Holiness quotes by Andrew Murray
#200. Here is the life of holiness as the Thrice Holy gives it: the Father, the first, the Holy One, making holy; the Son, the second, His Holy One, in whom we are; the Spirit, the third, who dwells in us, and through whom we abide in Christ, and Christ in us. Thus it is that the Thrice Holy makes us holy. [ ... ]
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, (2 Peter 3:11, KJV). #Quote by Andrew Murray
