“Forsaking all other lovers, so long as you both shall live…”

A lot of people equate HOLINESS with purity. And I think purity is marvelous and necessary — but it seems to me that purity, as wonderful as it is, is merely a beautiful symptom of what true holiness really is: radical, exclusive PASSION for Jesus.

I know that there are times when we just have to be militant and war against our fleshly appetites and not let them win, because we know it is the right thing to do. But the BEST times are when we are so in love with Him that other “lovers” just aren’t an option.
