Are We Fighting for Holiness?

“We must honestly face the question, am I willing to give up a certain practice or habit that is keeping me from holiness?  It is at this point of commitment that most of us fail.  We prefer to dally with sin, to try and play with it a little without getting too deeply involved.  We have the ‘just one more time’ syndrome.  We will take just one more lustful look, eat just one more rich desert before starting our diet, watch just one more television program before sitting down to our bible study.  In all of this we are postponing the day of commitment, the day we say to sin…ENOUGH!”
Jerry Bridges | The Pursuit of Holiness
