The Pursuit of Holiness

Here are some great quotes from the book “The Pursuit of Holiness” by Jerry Bridges.

“…the correct way to think of God is as the One who contains all, who gives all that is given, but who Himself can receive nothing that He has not given.” (The Pursuit of Holiness. Pg. 32)

“The truth is that the Man who walked among us was a demonstration, not of the unveiled deity but of perfect humanity.” (The Pursuit of Holiness. Pg. 35)

“For the blessed  news is that the God who needs no one has in sovereign condescension stooped to work by and in and through His obedient children.” (The Pursuit of Holiness. Pg. 36)

“For every man it must be Christ or eternal tragedy. Out of eternity our Lord came into time to rescue His human brethren whose moral folly had made them not only fools of the passing world but slaves of sin and death as well.” (The Pursuit of Holiness. Pg. 42)
