Just a Thought…

13 01 2009

Quick post, this one will be, which is rather unlike me, but see:

I’ve been reading a book that’s got me all in a mess,
entitled: “The Pursuit of Holiness”.

And the point of this post,
as the book thus did say,
`Tis not over sin
a victory win…
…but in the end `tis but to obey.

Just so there’s no misunderstanding, what the book is trying to say is that victory over sin is not the point of pursuing holiness; rather, the focus of the pursuit is obedience to God, which results in victory over sin, and not the other way around.

I never really thought of it that way before.
