Holiness is ...


I’m sure this has to be one of the best descriptions of holiness that I’ve ever read.

…Holiness is not rapture: it is an entire surrender of the will to God; it is living by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God; it is doing the will of our heavenly Father; it is trusting God in trial, in darkness as well as in the light; it is walking by faith and not by sight; it is relying on God with unquestioning confidence, and resting in His love.

AA 51.2

Surrender is something we don’t really like as humans, it means we aren’t in control any more and as Christians we are told to surrender to Christ each and every day.
