No Holiness, No Heaven

The grace that does not make a man better than others is a worthless counterfeit. Christ saves His people,
not IN their sins, but FROM their sins. Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord.
– Charles Spurgeon

What is the reason that some believers are so much brighter and holier than others? I believe the difference,
in nineteen cases out of twenty, arises from different habits about private prayer. I believe
that those who are not eminently holy pray little, and those who are eminently holy pray much.
– J. C. Ryle

Be dogmatically true, obstinately holy, immovably honest, desperately kind, fixed upright.
– Charles Spurgeon

Blind zeal is soon put to a shameful retreat, while holy resolution, built on fast principles,
lifts up its head like a rock in the midst of the waves.
– William Gurnall

The well-defined spiritual life is not only the highest life, but it is also the most easily lived.
The whole cross is more easily carried than the half. It is the man who tries to make the best of both
worlds who makes nothing of either. And he who seeks to serve two masters misses the benediction of both.
– Henry Drummond

“If your religion does not make you holy, it will damn you. It is simply painted pageantry in which to go to hell.
– C. H. Spurgeon
