Follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14)

The Word of God teaches us that holiness does not produce salvation; but it teaches us that without it no man shall see the Lord.

If our lives are not holy, let us not deceive ourselves. In these perilous times we need afresh to run to Him the Holy and the true, who saves us eternally and sanctifies us positionally, for help that we might live a holy life.

Holiness does not excuse sin in myself; it condemns and hates it. It does not say, “I was born with it, and I cannot help it.”

But it will confess “Yes I was born with it, but I abhor it. I refuse it. I would not obey it. I take God’s side against it.”

This is true practical holiness, and it should be the character of those who love the Lord Jesus.

“But, as he who hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of life” and this is not, dear Christian friends, an option; it is what the Spirit commands. Let not the enemy of our soul deceive us to think that holy life that is set apart for the Lord is not one worth living

For young ladies there is beauty in holiness.

And for young men there is strength in holiness.

May the Lord will use this issue of Toward the Mark to help you to grow and be established as you read it during the summer month
