"Holiness" (Excerpt)

To be holy is to be “set apart” (sanctified or consecrated) for God’s purposes.  Holiness is not a state of mind, but a state of being.  Holiness is not walking around in studied piety, noxious goodness or angelic loveliness.   It’s not halos or attire.  It’s not external, at all.  Holiness is a condition of the heart. The “set apart” heart has been broken and is wholly surrendered to the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ and none other.
