 The Pursuit of Holiness by John Murray

Topic: Holiness
Description: Paul does not say that we should put ourselves in a saved condition, for this is done by God's grace alone; but Scripture sometimes uses the word salvation to speak of the future completion of salvation; believers are actively engaged in the process of sanctification; it is the grave heresy of hyper-Calvinism to think that believers, having received salvation by grace alone, are not engaged in working and willing towards the completion of salvation; that heresy has a devastating and withering effect on the church, turning God's grace into slothfulness; we have responsibility and obligation to work out our own salvation with all our heart, mind, will, conscience and resolution; to pray without doing is slothfulness, and to act without praying is self-sufficiency, and both are opposite to godliness; we are motivated by the knowledge that back of our working is God's working; God's working is the assurance and guarantee that we will be saved.
