Do You Want To Be Holy?

Do you want to attain holiness? Do you feel this day a real hearty desire to be holy? Would you be a partaker of the Divine nature? Then go to Christ.
Wait for nothing. Wait for nobody. Linger not. Think not to make yourself ready. Go and say to Him, in the words of that beautiful hymn:
“Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, flee to Thee for dress; Helpless, look to Thee for grace.”
~ J.C. Ryle
