to enjoy the freedom from sin and delight in God that God gives to us through Jesus
- Growing in holiness is not sad, dutiful drudgery. It's about joy
- Change is about living in freedom
- Change is about discovering the delight of knowing and serving God. Chester writes, "All too often we think of holiness as giving up the pleasures of sin for some worthy but drab life. But holiness means recognizing that the pleasures of sin are empty and temporary, while God is inviting us to magnificent, true, full, and rich pleasures that last forever" (36). Amen!
- Becoming like Jesus is something that God gives to us. It has nothing to do with our achievement.
