    Holiness quotes by:    

A true Christian stands at as great distance from trusting in the best of his services as in the worst of his sins! He knows that the greatest part of his holiness will not make the least part of his justifying righteousness.

    Author: William Secker
    Source: The Consistent Christian, 1660.

Christian holiness is not a matter of painstaking conformity to the individual precepts of an external law code; it is rather a question of the Holy Spirit's producing His fruit in the life, reproducing those graces which were seen in perfection in the life of Christ.

    Author: F.F. Bruce

Those that look to be happy must first look to be holy.

    Author: Richard Sibbes
    Source: A Puritan Golden Treasury

It is not great talents God blesses so much as great likeness to Jesus.

    Author: Robert Murray McCheyne

Study universal holiness of life. Your whole usefulness depends on this, for your sermons last but an hour or two: your life preaches all week. If Satan can only make a covetous minister a lover of praise, of pleasure, of good eating, he has ruined your ministry. Give yourself to prayer, and get your texts, your thoughts, your words, from God.

    Author: Robert Murray McCheyne

The doctrines of the gospel are meant to mould us so that our lives begin to 'set' in the likeness of Christ. We have made little or no impression upon the world, for the very reason that the gospel doctrine has made a correspondingly slight impression upon us. It cannot be overemphasized that men and women who have accomplished anything in God's strength have always done so on the basis of their grasp of truth.

    Author: Sinclair B. Ferguson

Woven into the warp and woof of the New Testament's exposition of what it means for us to be holy is the great groundwork that the self-existent, thrice holy, triune God has -- in Himself, by Himself and for Himself -- committed Himself and all three Persons of His being to bringing about the holiness of His own people. This is the Father's purpose, the Son's purchase and the Spirit's ministry.

    Author: Sinclair B. Ferguson

If every attribute of the Deity were a distinct member, holiness would be the soul to animate them. Without holiness His patience would be an indulgence to sin, His mercy a fondness, His wrath a madness, His power a tyranny, His wisdom an unworthy subtlety.Holiness gives decorum to them all.

    Author: Stephen Charnock

Of late God has been pleased to keep my soul hungry almost continually, so that I have been filled with a kind of pleasing pain. When I really enjoy God, I feel my desires of Him the more insatiable and my thirstings after holiness more unquenchable.

    Author: David Brainerd

A holy life does not live in the closet, but it cannot live without the closet.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

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.

    Author: George Whitefield

Free and warm reception into the divine favor is the strongest of all motives in leading a man to seek conformity to Him who has thus freely forgiven him all trespasses.

    Author: Horatius Bonar
