Are You Holy? Part 3

Reader, how shall we ever find a place in heaven, if we die unholy! Death works no change. The grave makes no alteration. Each will rise again with the same character in which he breathed his last breath. Where will our place be if we are strangers to holiness now!

Suppose for a moment that you were allowed to enter heaven without holiness. What would you do! What possible enjoyment could you feel there? To which of all the saints would you join yourself, and by whose side would you sit down! Their pleasures are not your pleasures, their tastes not your tastes, their character not your character. How could you possibly be happy, if you had not been holy on earth!
