We are 100 percent responsible for the pursuit of holiness, but at the same time we are 100 percent dependent upon the Holy Spirit to enable us in that pursuit. The pursuit of holiness is not a pull-yourself-up-by-your-own-bootstraps approach to the Christian life.

I don’t do a lot of cross promotion here, so I hope you will indulge me as I write about a project I’m really excited about.
On Monday (Australian time) I am going to start a new blogging series on Matthew’s gospel. I anticipate that the blog will be updated three times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri). I’d love for you to join me as I explore the first of the synoptic gospels. You can follow the blog by going to www.thegospelofmatthew.wordpress.com
Spread the word and I hope you will join me on Monday!
Incidentally, I have also a verse-by-verse exposition on James available; http://thebookofjames.wordpress.com/
“If we obtained the blessing when we first asked, we would not have a sense of mercy’s value”
~ Charles Spurgeon

A person without a vision is a person without a future & a person without a future will always return to their past.

If you want to understand Jesus, you have to study the whole Bible. Christian duty is not defined solely by the words in red.

If you please man and never please God you have nothing; If you please God and man forsakes you, you have everything.
