Holiness is the very principle of eternal life, the very beginning of eternal life in the heart, and that which will certainly grow up to eternal life.
In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling. (Exodus 15:13)
How holy people look when they are sea-sick!
Moses said to the Lord, “The people cannot come up Mount Sinai, because you yourself warned us, ‘Put limits around the mountain and set it apart as holy.'” (Exodus 19:23)
Perfect holiness is the aim of the saints on earth, and it is the reward of the saints in Heaven.
And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean. (Leviticus 10:10)
As God delights in his own beauty, he must necessarily delight in the creature’s holiness which is a conformity to and participation of it, as truly as (the) brightness of a jewel, held in the sun’s beams, is a participation or derivation of the sun’s brightness, though immensely less in degree.
And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. (Ezekiel 44:23)
Spiritual rest maketh no man idle, spiritual walking maketh no man weary.
It is only in contact with the holy that I am blissfully and intimately liberated from the ambiguity and vacuity of my self.
