“But as he which has called you is holy, so be you holy in all manner of conversation.” 1 Peter 1:15.
“The grand truths of the Bible are for us individually, to rule, to guide, to control our lives for this is the only way in which Christ can be properly represented to our world in grace and loveliness in the characters of all who profess to be His disciples. Nothing less than heart service will be acceptable with God. God requires the sanctification of the entire man, body, soul, and spirit. The Holy Spirit implants a new nature, and molds through the grace of Christ the human character until the image of Christ is perfected. This is true holiness….
The spirit and word and influence you carry are making impressions upon the minds of others. The atmosphere which surrounds the soul, if it is evil, will be like spiritual malaria, which will be poisonous to those around. But it is profitable for the soul to have an atmosphere that will be as a savour of life unto life to others. When the soul is weighted with the truth which works by love and purifies the soul, a heavenly atmosphere will pervade the soul. “He that walked with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed” (Proverbs 13:20). Every soul that claims to believe the truth, should manifest uprightness of character, devotion to God, steadfastness of purpose, and represent the character of Christ in a well-ordered life and godly conversation.” –The Upward Look, p. 27.
