Holiness: Our Greatest Need, Our Greatest Lack

Guest: Jerry Bridges, author, The Pursuit of Holiness and Holiness Day by Day Devotional

“ … like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.’”  1 Peter 1:15-16

The attributes of God are endless—He is all-powerful, all-knowing, always present, forgiving yet just, loving yet perfectly wrathful.  But God’s most distinguishing quality above all these, one that completely separates Him from us, is holiness.

“Holy, holy, holy” is the way the angel in Isaiah 6 describes God, emphasizing that just one “holy” isn’t enough to capture His inconceivable righteousness.

And then there’s us.  Fallen.  Prone to sin.  Weak in our flesh.  And yet God calls us to “be holy, for I am holy.”  But how?  What does being holy even mean?

We have just the right guest this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss holiness.  84-year-old revered author Jerry Bridges will join us to talk about “the pursuit of holiness” (which is also the title of his bestselling book) and how we can make progress in a world and in a body that pulls us the opposite way.

NOTE: Our NEW FEATURED RESOURCES for a donation of any amount are Jerry Bridges’ books, The Pursuit of Holiness (softcover, 179 pages, $12.99 retail) and Holiness Day by Day devotional (hardcover, 336 pages, $19.99 retail).  Either or both would be great to read yourself or to give as a gift.

Choose one for a donation of any amount to The Christian Worldview.  Or better yet, bundle them for a donation of $30 or more.

Transcript:

Holiness—our greatest need and our greatest lack.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

God offers forgiveness of sins through Christ’s perfect sacrifice on the cross.  God also gives believers something else: Jesus’ perfect righteousness.  Positionally, God no longer sees the believer as a sinner but rather a saint.

But of course our present condition tells otherwise.  Even though the believer’s past, present, and future sins have been covered, we still sin in our fallen flesh.

God commands, “You shall be holy, as I am holy.”  While we can’t be perfectly holy now, we are called to strive for it as we study God’s Word and obey it and the Holy Spirit within us.

Hear an interview about the pursuit of holiness with author Jerry Bridges at TheChristianWorldview.org.

This weekend, we’ll talk with David Limbaugh about his new book, Jesus on Trial.
