Great Quotes on Holiness


"If you don't delight in the fact that your Father is holy, holy, holy, then you are spiritually dead. You may be in a church. You may go to a Christian school. But if there is no delight in your soul for the holiness of God, you don't know God. You don't love God."
- R.C. Sproul

"When God is our Holy Father, sovereignty, holiness, omniscience, and immutability do not terrify us; they leave us full of awe and gratitude."  
- Ravi Zacharias

"But saints and angels behold that glory of God which consists in the beauty of His holiness; and it is this sight only that will melt and humble the hearts of men, wean them from the world, draw them to God, and effectually change them. 
A sight of the awful greatness of God may overpower men's strength, and be more than they can endure; but if the moral beauty of God be hid, the enmity of the heart will remain in its full strength. No love will be enkindled..."
- Jonathan Edwards

"There is no holiness without a Christ-centered, Christ-seeking, Christ-serving, Christ-adoring heart."
- J.I. Packer

"Pray fervently or you do nothing. Cold praying is no more prayer than a painting of fire is fire. How can prayers that do not even warm your own heart move God's?... Elijah´s prayer called fire down from heaven because it carried fire up to heaven."
- William Gurnall

"1  Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

3  The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters. 
4  The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty."
- David, Psalm 29
