Holiness

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14

“Holiness–as I then wrote down some of my contemplations on it–appeared to me to be of a sweet, calm, pleasant, charming, serene nature, which brought an inexpressible purity, brightness, peacefulness, ravishment to the soul; in other words, that it made the soul like a field or garden of God, with all manner of pleasant fruits and flowers, all delightful and undisturbed, enjoying a sweet calm and the gentle vivifying beams of the sun.” –Jonathan Edwards

“The vision of God our Saviour in heaven is reserved as the reward of holiness, and the stress of our salvation is laid upon our holiness, though a placid peaceable disposition contributes much to our meetness for heaven.” – Matthew Henry

” The Lord Jesus Christ became my present Saviour, and my soul found rest at last, such a rest that no words can describe it — rest from all its legal strivings, rest from all its weary conflicts, rest from all its bitter failures. The secret of holiness was revealed to me, and that secret was Christ. Christ made unto me wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” – Hannah Whitall Smith

 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. Hebrews 12:13
