Holiness - Part 1
Another quality ebook from Chapel Library. In Holiness (1879), J. C. Ryle shows that holiness may be acquired only by those who add personal exertion to faith, and who observe the many practical exhortations in the Scriptures to saintliness in daily life. He explains the meaning of scriptural “perfection,” the controversial seventh chapter of Romans, the doctrine of the indwelling Christ, the relationship of consecration to conversion, and the necessity for those who would be holy to “watch, pray, and fight.” Like the great Puritan masters from whom he freely draws, he offers no easy way to the highest Christian life. His desire throughout is practical and persistent that personal holiness may increase greatly among God’s people.
