The process of sanctification is a common process between God and the believer, no one can reach any level of holiness if God does not work in his life, and equally, a man cannot reach any holiness without an effort on his part as well.
Why is holy life a rare phenomenon? According to the author, Jerry Bridges, the main cause is men’s false understanding of their duty in this regard.
The book is based on the commandment from the Epistle to the Hebrews “Follow …holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:” (12:14). This book challenges the reader to obey God’s calling and to run to the goal.
