CHRIST IS RISEN! TRULY HE IS RISEN!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"A saint is a witness who reveals God. Often we think about holiness as something distant, something separate from ourselves. Holiness is not something that has shaken us to the depths of our being, and most of us would have little trouble imagining ourselves without it. And even if we don't deny the reality of holiness outright, we are usually so preoccupied with worldly matters, so inundated with various cares and concerns, that we don't think about it. And when we do think about holiness, we will acknowledge it politely, with a certain measure of respect, without, however, undertaking a serious struggle to acquire it for ourselves. We don't feel a need for it in our lives. And yet holiness is the sign—the proof—of the glory of God. If I truly want the Lord to be victorious in this chaotic and confused world, then I must struggle continually to be sanctified, to live a life of holiness."
