The Bible calls us to “Be holy.” Is that even possible?
There must have been some glitch in the translation, right? The writer must have meant, “Be good enough” or “Be decent,” but never “Be holy.” That’s impossible, isn’t it?
That depends on your definition of “holy.” If by it you mean “always perfect, never making a mistake” you’re right—that’s impossible. But if by “holy” you mean “wanting and doing the right things,” that can be done with the aid of the Holy Spirit.
Taken from NavPress classic The Pursuit of Holiness, this book shows students how “running as to get the prize” isn’t just possible, it’s what life is all about.
