"A second Adam to the fight
And to the rescue came"
Adam was a perfect man. Fully human in a way only Jesus has been since. Adam's blood condemns us. Jesus's Blood liberates us.
Because of the Holiness of Jesus.
John Eldredge has written an entire book on the subject of "The Utter Relief of Holiness" where he addresses in far more detail than I can in this entry how - in detail - Holiness is what we were created for.
But we need to pursue it. Relentlessly. Unceasingly.
We must be completely single minded in our pursuit of the Holiness of Jesus. Out of it comes a deeper relationship with a Holy God who desires our company so much He chose to become Sin for us.
So continuing the Lent theme of giving things up, let's give up quitting. Let's give up turning our backs on the pursuit of Holiness and drink deeply from the suppy Jesus taps us into.
Pursue Him the way He pursued us.
