Time for some quotes!

As I was preparing for a meeting today I ran across some good quotes concerning sanctification and thought I would pass them along.

This life, therefore,
is not righteousness but growth in righteousness,
not health but healing,
not being but becoming,
not rest by exercise.
We are not yet what we shall be,
but we are growing toward it;
the process is not yet finished but it is going on.
This is not the end but it is the road;
all does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.
- Martin Luther

Holiness is not the way to Christ.
Christ is the way to holiness.
- Adrian Rogers

Becoming a Christian is not making a new start in life;
it is receiving a new life to start with.
- Thomas Adams

Grace is not simply leniency when we have sinned.
Grace is the enabling gift of God not to sin.
Grace is power, not just pardon.
- John Piper

Don't just sit there by yourself or off to one side and hang your head, and shake it and gnaw your knuckles and worry and look for a way out, nothing on your mind except how bad you feel, how you hurt, what a poor guy you are. Get up, you lazy scamp! Down on your knees! Up with your hands and eyes toward heaven!
- Martin Luther

If you still have a hankering for some good quotes, check this one out at my buddies blog.
