The Pursuit of Holiness (eBook) (Vers une vie sainte (eBook))
Do you need help reading our eBooks?
God gave us the command to be holy, because he is holy… But there are many occasions when Christians give up, victims of this war that sin leads, which decimates the ranks, or at best, urges Christians to find a fragile truce, a meager and unsatisfying compromise with sin, especially in its most difficult forms.
Why is a holy life so rarely our experience? The fundamental problem we face, according to the author, is that Christians have failed to understand their own responsibility for sin. “If we sin,” he wrote, “it is because we have chosen to sin and not because we are unable to resist. We are not defeated, we are simply disobedient ”.
Whether you have long embarked on this assiduous search for real and lived daily holiness, or have given little thought to this question so far, the principles in this book will encourage and challenge you to respond to this urgent call from God, to this command from which we cannot escape: "Seek [...] sanctification, without which no one will see the Lord" (Heb 12:14).
