Sample text

The church is not holy on its own but only because God chose to live in it and work through it. The church is holy because its very existence is inseparably linked to God by means of his Spirit. Thus, the Spirit of God acts upon the church so the church is holy, the Spirit of God sanctifies the church so the church is holy, and the Spirit of God guides the church so the church is holy. Transcendent holiness is always the source of immanent holiness. The holiness of God is always the origin of our own holiness.
