How do we live holy lives as we struggle with our sinful nature and resist the morally polluted world around us? God makes it clear in the Bible that holiness is not an option for the Christian: “Be holy, for I am holy,” He commands. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life, because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. We know that we do not have to earn our salvation due to experiencing God’s marvelous grace, but we recognize that God has called us to live holy lives.
In The Pursuit of Holiness, Navigators author Jerry Bridges helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do―and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you dig into the Gospel and deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.
The study guide included with this volume contains 12 lessons for personal or group use so that you can dig deeper into the transforming Gospel truths contained in this book. Whether you are just beginning to pursue a life of holiness or are continuing your journey, these principles and guidelines will challenge you to joyfully obey God’s command of holiness.
This new edition replaces both The Pursuit of Holiness (ISBN 9781576839324) and the study guide (ISBN 9781576839881) by combining both resources into one volume
