A Holy Nation

by T. Austin-Sparks

Recorded May 1960

"No one can contemplate the awfulness of Israel’s tragedy over these two thousand years without feeling that here is the presence of something very, very great, important - and in a sense something very terrible - this matter of holiness. And you know that there are other words into which this one word is translated. It simply means, as we often say: sanctified, separated, set apart for God; many ways of expressing it, but that's what it is. This is something which belongs to God solely and wholly and belonging to God it is sacred, it is holy, it is sanctified, it is separated from all that is contrary to God. That is holiness."

Matt 21:42, 1 Pet 2:7
