Christian holiness is Christlikeness and godliness. At its heart, entire sanctification is a work of grace where God restores us to His image and where His heart is found in our life and love of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is revealed in our love for Him and others, rather than in how well we can keep the rules of Christian behavior. It is revealed by how we love, and especially by how we love those whom others reject in the places where most refuse to go.
