34681: The Chase: Pursuing Holiness in Your Everyday LifeThe Chase
By Jerry Bridges

The Bible calls us to "Be holy." Is that even possible? The writer must have meant, "Be good enough" or "Be decent," but never "Be holy." That's impossible, isn't it? That depends on your definition of "holy." If by it you mean "always perfect, never making a mistake" you're right---that's impossible. But if by "holy" you mean "wanting and doing the right things," that can be done with the aid of the Holy Spirit. Taken from Bridges' classic The Pursuit of Holiness, The Chase shows believers how "running as to get the prize" is not only possible, it's what life is all about.
