Do You Long For Holiness?

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

– Peter, in his first epistle

I never feel comfortably but when I find my soul going forth after God; if I cannot be holy, I must necessarily be miserable for ever.

– David Brainerd, The Diary and Journal of David Brainerd; Volume 1; pg. 113.
