O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Do You Want To Be Holy?

Posted: 09 Mar 2010 12:00 AM PST

Do you want to attain holiness? Do you feel this day a real hearty desire to be holy? Would you be a partaker of the Divine nature? Then go to Christ. Wait for nothing. Wait for nobody. Linger not. Think not to make yourself ready. Go and say to Him, in the words of that beautiful hymn:

"Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling;

Naked, flee to Thee for dress; Helpless, look to Thee for grace."

~ J.C. Ryle
