What is Holiness?

Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgement, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word (the Bible). He who most entirely agrees with God, he is the most holy man.

– J. C. Ryle, 1816-1900, Holiness

The best company

“I am always best when alone.

No place is like my own study:

no company like good books;

especially the book of God.”

– Matthew Henry, 1662-1714,
