The pursuit of holiness / Jerry Bridges.

By: Bridges, Jerry, 1929-2016 [author.]Publisher: Colorado Springs, Colorado : NavPress, [1978]Copyright date: ©1978Description: 158 pages ; 18 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 089109430X (paperback)Subject(s): HolinessSummary: Holiness : the Christian's joint venture with God. God's command is, "Be holy, for I am holy." But as victims of sin's "guerilla warfare," Christians are often prone to give up the fight, or at least to compromise with sin in its more difficult forms. Why do we so rarely experience holy living? The central issue confronting us, says Jerry Bridges in The Pursuit of Holiness, is that Christians fail to understand their own responsibility for holiness. "If we sin," he writes, "it is because we choose to sin -- not because we lack the ability to say no to temptation. We are not defeated; we are simply disobedient." Bridges, longtime Navigator staff member in both field ministries and administration, looks in this book at such topics as: What God has provided to help us live holy lives; What is meant by the scriptural statement that we have "died to sin"; Practical guidelines for determining right from wrong; The struggles we have with physical overindulgence and unloving attitudes; How our reason and emotions influence our will; How habits and personal discipline play a part in holy living. Whether you're continuing a long and serious quest in the practice of holiness, or have never really thought about it, the principles given here will serve as an impelling challenge to obey God's call. - Back cover
