The Nike approach to progressive sanctification

October 26, 2012

Faith

“The New Testament calls upon us to take action; it does not tell us that the work of sanctification is going to be done for us … We are in the ‘good fight of faith,’ and we have to do the fighting. But, thank god, we are enabled to do it; for the moment we believe, and are justified by faith, and are born again of the Spirit of God, we have the ability. So the New Testament method of sanctification is to remind us of that; and having reminded us of it, it says, ‘Now then, go and do it.'” — Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Quote taken from Kevin DeYoung’s excellent new book The Hole In Our Holiness. I believe his message is vital to the church, and I will be excerpting nuggets often on this blog.
