The holy life is a battlefield. As the Holy Spirit creates in us a desire for holiness and enables us to practice it, we are also called to fight temptation and sin. Being unprepared for this reality can lead a believer to failure and discouragement. Alistair Begg reminds us that pursuing God’s righteousness is not the same as legalism, since the heart of holiness is not pride, but love. Love demands right living, and right living displays itself in love.
