Why Holiness Matters: We've Lost Our Way--But We Can Find it Again [Kindle Edition]
Tyler Braun (Author)

Quote:
When was the last time you thought about holiness?

God's
specific command for holiness: "Be holy, for I am holy," (in Leviticus 11, 19, and
in 1st Peter 1) is an idea rephrased and repeated throughout the Bible.

But
because of our misunderstandings of sin, holiness,
innocence, and God, His command rings hollow in
the action of our faith.

-Sin (we view it as either inevitable
or we just go with it)
-Holiness (we view it as unrealistic
or we ignore it because there's no immediate payoff)
-Innocence
(we view it as subordinate to "experiencing the world"), and
-God
(we often think he'll probably let us down-just like so many people do).

But,
what if there was a different way?

By entering into God's deep
affection, He rewrites our wayward story into a narrative of unwavering devotion,
a living, breathing Christian faith distinguished by God's inner-working. In Why
Holiness Matters, Tyler Braun tells the story of the Millennial Generation
and our need for rescue from our own shame into the light and love of living in
God's presence.
