• “The secret to being a good mom is not being perfect, it’s becoming dependent upon the only One who is…The secret to being a fearless, faith-filled wife and mother does not come through striving, but surrender.” – Leslie Ludy

Holiness Complete by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/22/11

“I hated my sin. I felt like there was nothing I so much desired in this world as holiness. But the more I pursued and strove after it, the more it eluded my grasp.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Those words came from Hudson Taylor, a pioneer missionary to China, known for his faith and devotion. But it bothered him that he still gave in to sin.

“Often I am tempted to think that one so full of sin cannot be a child of God at all.”

Nancy: Then a friend gave him this quote from a book called Christ is All.

“The Lord Jesus received is holiness begun. The Lord Jesus cherished is holiness advancing. The Lord Jesus counted upon as never absent would be holiness complete.”

Nancy: Hudson Taylor took a new look at Christ and His holiness. Maybe you need to do the same thing. As you focus on Jesus instead of your own abilities, you’ll be transformed into His image.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “When human reason has exhausted every possibility, the children can go to their Father and receive all they need.…For only when you have become utterly dependent upon prayer and faith, only when all human possibilities have been exhausted, can you begin to reckon that God will intervene and work His miracles.” – Basilea Schlink
