Must have in every Believer's library

Are you serious about your Christian walk? Are you seriously hungry to display more of Christ in how you daily live? Do you struggle to be hungry for God? Then this is a book I would highly recommend to every believer who is stagnant in the spiritual walk or hungry to soak in Spirit with Christ being the aroma. Having a biblical understanding of what holiness means is vital to our walk. The sequel to this book "The Practice of Godliness." Another must have.

Pursuing what Christians have nearly forgotten

Holiness: The nearly forgotten word of Christianity. If it was happiness, joy, love, grace, or mercy the modern church would be very familiar with it, but holiness is a word foreign to many professing Christians. Jerry Bridges has done an outstanding job in awakening Christians to the fact that God has a responsiblity in sanctifying us, and we as the children of God have a major role in our own pursuit of holiness. Jerry Bridges shows you as plain as day from the Word of God that Christ saves people from not only the penalty of sin (hell) but also from the power of sin. So many Christians sit in the church pew thinking how wonderful it will be to go to Heaven, yet their daily life is full of bondage to things that Christ has given them the power to overcome. The Christian life is not just victory over hell through Christ, but also over the sinful habits, addictions, and attitudes that we were enslaved to us sinners. Let Jerry Bridges turn your attention to what God's Word already states plainly. We have God's mercy to forgive us of sin, but we also have God's grace to empower us to live like Jesus did.

Excellent Title on Personal Holiness

Bridges has written a gem of a book that every Christian can benefit from, whether young or old, mature or young in the faith. The book purpose is to challenge the reader to become more like Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit combined with human effort. Among the important points covered include: 1. God calls us to be like Him and not like others. 2. Holiness is necessary for effective service. 3. 3 aspects of sin's nature and tactics. 4. We must discipline our bodies and treat them as temples of God. 5. 3 principles to practice to train ourselves in godliness. 6. Faith is necessary to living a life pleasing to God. 7. Instead of withdrawing from the world, we must resist its influence. Our holiness will be a strong living rebuke to others. 8. We must be concerned with not only our own personal holiness, but also the eternal destiny of others. 9. 2 ways to express dependence on the Holy Spirit for living a holy life. 10. While God provides the opportunity to be released from sin's bondage, we have the responsibility to act. In summary, this is a small but powerful book to inspire the reader to allow God, through His Holy Spirit, to live His holiness through us. Read and enjoy, highly recommended!

Great for a Bible Study group....

I have taught through this book twice in the past five years. Each time I have been challenged in my Christian walk. The accompanying study guide with scriptural references and thought-provoking study questions make this relevant for both new and mature believers. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. As Christians, we serve a holy God and are called to live holy lives. This book beautifully encourages believers to focus on God's holiness as we renew our minds and lives in holiness.
