From chapter 2 of Jerry Bridges’s The Pursuit of Holiness:
The absolute holiness of God should be of great comfort and assurance to us. If God is perfectly holy, then we can be confident that His actions toward us are always perfect and just. (p. 24, 1996 edition)
This chapter is about the holiness of God. This is a short little quote, but it is profound. Do you connect God’s holiness to a sense of comfort? I hadn’t made that connection before.
I don’t know how regular this feature will be, but I thought I’d share some quotes from the books I’m reading. I present these with the understanding that I do not necessarily endorse all of an author’s positions in this particular book or in his/her writing in general. These are quotes which I found interesting, provocative, well-written, or worthy of sharing in some other way.
