Grasping the Significance of God's Holiness

But if we truly grasp the significance of God’s perfect holiness, both in Himself and in His demands of us, we will readily see we can never justify before Him even the slightest deviation from His perfect will. God does not accept the excuse, “Well, that’s just the way I am,” or even the more hopeful statement, “Well I’m still growing in that area of my life.” No, God’s holiness does not make allowance for minor flaws or shortcomings in our personal character.
