Reformation Theology quotes "The Pursuit of Holiness" by Jerry Bridges. It is a fine quote, I agree with it wholly, but the thing that got to me most was that title - we must PURSUE holiness. The quote uses good imagery about life:
As indicated in the previous chapter, indwelling sin remains in us even though it has been dethroned. And through it has been overthrown and weakened, its nature has not changed.
It is as if Christ has overthrown the sinful government of our lives, but rebel forces of evil remain active. They must be pursued and killed.

Too often we think Christ's victory on the cross simply expunged all sin from our lives and we need do nothing. AS we have so often learned in the world, winning the war is easy, winning the peace is difficult. That's the Christian life - winning the peace. It is a pursuit of holiness.

Do you have your running shoes on?
