Daring to be Holy (ht: Josh Harris)

Josh Harris writes, “Today I came across a quote I’d written in my journal. In his book Holiness, J.C. Ryle quotes puritan William Gurnall:

‘Say not that thou hast royal blood in thy veins and art born of God unless thou canst prove thy pedigree by daring to be holy.’

The grace that justifies us also sanctifies us. If we are in Christ, if we are sons and daughters of the King, then we will dare to be holy. Our obedience cannot make us righteous before God; but those declared righteous by grace alone through faith alone will dedicate themselves to the pursuit of holiness.”
