Holiness is far more than an inclination toward occasional acts of kindness and charity. It is a commitment to persistent surrender before God

Persistence doesn’t make sense unless we live with a keen sense of eternity.

Christian endurance is based on the idea that there is another life, commonly known as heaven, which is eternal, and for which this life is preparation. The coming world is so glorious, weighted with so much honor, that it is worth making sacrifices now to receive glory and honor and immortality there.”
