Quotes from Holiness by JC Ryle

“True holiness does not consist merely of believing and feeling, but of doing and bearing, and a practical exhibition of active and passive grace. Our tongues, our tempers, our natural passions and inclinations– our conduct as parents and children, masters and servants, husbands and wives, rulers and subjects–our dress, our employment of time, our behavior in business, our demeanor in sickness and health, in riches and poverty–all, all these are matters which are fully treated by inspired writers. They are not content with a general statement of what we should believe and feel, and how we are to have the roots of holiness planted in our hearts. They dig down lower. They go into particulars.”
