Reading a great new author

The Beginning of Holiness

"Think of yourself as one about to take a journey. Like all expeditions, our journey starts with a departure. Long before we ever arrive at holiness, we must depart from self-righteousness and pride. If we would truly live in the Presence of God, we must furst travel the way of humility and truth."

This is the invitation that Frances Frangipane gives at the beginning of his book Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God. I am reading through this great book and thought I would share parts of it with you.

So here I am at the beginning of this great journey. Ready to depart from my old self with its luggage of selfish pride and own worth. I want my way to be permiated by the love of the Lord, by Himself. And for that to happen, no longer must I abide in myself and its ways.

Come walk with me....
