The Pursuit of Holiness

by, Jerry Bridges

Ch. 14: Habits of Holiness

  • Every sin we commit reinforces the habit of sinning and makes it easier to sin p.132
  • Principles to train ourselves in godliness:
    1. Frequent repetition p.132
      • The more we say no to sin, the more we are inclined to say no p.133
    2. Never let an exception occur p.134
    3. Diligence in all areas is required to ensure success in one area p.134
      • Continually giving in to that habit weakens our wills against the onslaughts of temptation from other directions p.134
    4. Don’t be discouraged by failure
