This is one of my favorite books on holiness. J.I. Packer makes vivid what the holiness of God is and what it means to us. He explains that holiness is not just a concept but it is who God is and it is what He requires of us as His beloved children. Packer goes on to say that living a pure life inside out is not as impossible as we think rather it is made possible by Jesus who paid the price of our sins on the cross and with the help of the Holy Spirit.
"The sacrifice You desire is a broken spirit.
You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God."
~Psalm 51:17 (NLT)
"He gave us His life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and make us His very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds."
~Titus 2:14 (NLT)
