Spirit-Powered, Gospel-Driven, Faith-Fueled Effort (Session V)

Speakers: Kevin DeYoung Year: 2012 Session: Main Session

How do you have a committed and passionate personal holiness? The personal pursuit of holiness is a Spirit-powered, Gospel-driven, faith filled effort. Holiness does not work apart from trusting God and trusting does not put an end to trying to be holy. The central motivation for your obedience is to understand and live out what you are in Christ.
