Spurgeon on How to Seek Holiness

A close friend of mine (steeped in gospel-grace) sent me this quote by Spurgeon this morning. It was a fantastic gospel-driven reminder and brought great encouragement to my heart. May it lead you to Christ as well!

    “For my own part, I desire constantly to stand at the foot of the cross, with no other testimony concerning myself than this —

    I the chief of sinners am, But Jesus died for me.

    Personal holiness is to be sought for with all our hearts, and it can only be obtained by faith in Jesus Christ — by simple faith in Him. He gives us power to overcome sin through his precious blood. Christ is made of God unto you “wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption;” in Him be all your glorying, and in Him alone, for if not so, the rubbish will cover up the foundation. “I know whom I have believed.” None but Jesus, none but Jesus.

    “Personal holiness is to be sought for with all our hearts, and it can only be obtained by faith in Jesus Christ…”

    There rests our souls’ only hope, upon His precious blood and righteousness; every other hope we heartily abhor. Well, the foundation is laid. Blessed be God for that! When a man is brought to rest alone in Jesus, then there is laid for him in Zion a sure foundation-stone, and to that he is cemented by sovereign grace.”

C.H. Spurgeon
