Topic: The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Holiness, by Kevin de Young.
“Maybe you’ve thought about how God saves us, or what we must do to be saved, or when you were saved. But have you ever considered why he saved you? There is more than one right answer to that question. The Bible says God saved us because he loves us (John 3:16). It also tells us that God saved us for the praise of his own name (Eph. 1:6, 12, 14). Those are two of the best answers to the why question. But there is another answer – just as good, just as biblical, just as important. God saved you so that you might be holy…. God chose us for salvation in eternity past and sent Christ to save us in history and gave us the gift of faith by the working of the Holy Spirit in our lifetimes so that we might be holy.” (Eph. 1:3-4) (pp. 23-24)
What role the law of God? What role the gospel of Christ? What role God’s grace? What role our effort?
