On loving a holy God
"Loving a holy God is beyond our
moral power. The only kind of God we can love by our sinful nature is
an unholy god, an idol made by our own hands. Unless we are born of
the Spirit of God, unless God sheds His holy love in our hearts, unless
He stoops in His grace to change our hearts, we will not love Him...
To love a holy God requires grace, grace strong enough to pierce our
hardened hearts and awaken our moribound souls."
