Overview

How important is holiness to you? How much thought, attention, and effort do you devote to the pursuit of holiness? Is it your priority and mission to be holy?

Nancy Leigh DeMoss teaches that we must make it our constant, conscious ambition to be holy. Just as an athlete sets his sight on winning an Olympic gold medal, so we as believers must focus on the pursuit of holiness. And the reward that awaits us brings a depth of joy that far outweighs a fading gold medal; it is the humble pleasure of hearing the Father say, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

Do you long for an authentic faith? Are you eager to know your heavenly Father in a more intimate way? Read Holiness and learn how to say 'no' to corruption and 'yes' to grace.

Holiness is the third book in The Revive OurHearts Series, which has sold well over 240,000 copies. All three include study questions at the end of each chapter, making them ideal for personal or small group study.

Read an Excerpt

Holiness is not just for some select few spiritual giants; it is not just for pious people who sit around all day with nothing to do but "be holy." Holiness is for moms who battle a sense of uselessness and discouragement and who are tempted to escape into self-pity, romance novels, antidepressants, or the arms of an attentive man. It is for lonely widows, divorcees, and singles who are struggling to stay sexually abstinent. It is for husbands and wives who wrestle with bitterness toward mates who have abused or abandoned them. It is for men who are tempted to cheat on their expense reports or their wives or to abdicate their spiritual leadership in the home. "Everyone who names the name of the Lord" is called to live a holy life! God would not command us to do anything without also enabling us to do it.
He knows we cannot possibly be holy apart from Him. That's why He has made provision for us to overcome sin through the cross of Christ. That's why He has sent His Spirit to live in our hearts. And that's why He has given every believer a supernatural resource called grace that gives us the desire and the power to be holy.
