Irresistible Holiness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/25/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What comes to mind when you hear of someone being described as holy?

“Strict and rigid.”

“They’re probably not very fun.”

“They’ve got to have their t’s crossed and their i’s dotted just right, you know, uptight all the time.”

Nancy: Here’s what C.S. Lewis had to say on the topic: “How little people know who think that holiness is dull. When one meets the real thing . . . it is irresistible.”

Jesus was the real thing. He was perfectly holy and overflowing with joy. When we love Him and obey Him, we’ll be filled with joy, too. We’ll be free from the weight and burden of sin and able to obey the Scripture that says: “You must be holy for I am holy.”

Sin will rob us of everything that we truly enjoy. But when we’ve been forgiven, walking with our Lord in holiness, we’ll know the joy of having clean hands, a pure heart, and a clear conscience. Why settle for anything less?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael
