Holiness is probably the most talked about subject amongst Christians. Once we come to know Jesus as our Savior we will spend our lives desiring to follow the Holy Spirit which leads us to be holy. Complete holiness is only complete when we are in heaven. These quotes from famous Christian will help you realize what true holiness is.

As you read along, reflect upon your relationship with the Lord:

"Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God's judgment, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word. " ~ J.C. Ryle

"No man should desire to be happy who is not at the same time holy. He should spend his efforts in seeking to know and do the will of God, leaving to Christ the matter of how happy he should be." ~ A.W. Tozer, Preacher & Writer

"Nowhere can we get to know the holiness of God, and come under His influence and power, except in the inner chamber. It has been well said: "No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God." ~ Andrew Murray, Preacher

"Holiness has never been the driving force of the majority. It is, however, mandatory for anyone who wants to enter the kingdom." ~ Elisabeth Elliot, Missionaries

"We must be holy, because this is the only sound evidence that we have a saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ." ~ J.C. Ryle, Pastor & Writer

"God does not want you to become a God; he wants you to become godly – taking on his values, attitudes, and character." ~ Rick Warren

"The greatest test of whether the holiness we profess to seek or to attain is truth and life will be whether it produces an increasing humility in us. In man, humility is the one thing needed to allow God's holiness to dwell in him and shine through him. The chief mark of counterfeit holiness is lack of humility. The holiest will be the humblest." ~ Andrew Murray, Preacher
