The Pursuit of Holiness

by, Jerry Bridges

Ch. 13: Holiness and Our Wills

  • When god originally created man, the reason, the emotions, and the will all worked in perfect harmony… reason led the way in understanding the will of God, the will consented to God’s will, and the emotions delighted in doing it p.125
  • While the will is the ultimate determiner of all choices, it is influenced in its choices by the strongest forces brought to bear upon it p.125
  • Therefore we must guard what enters our minds and what influences our emotions p.125
  • God most often appeals to our wills through our reason, sin and Satan usually appeal to us through our desires p.127
