"Strength to Pursue Holiness" is Ronald Villagran's first book written foremost as an inspiration and encouragement to the believer, the Body of Christ and His Church, to Holy living. The call from the Lord to Holy living is by faith in the promise of His Spirit and the Word of God and not by self-attainment or the will of man. A corrupted and crooked world perverts happiness, joy, love, peace, and prosperity with its own version of the false promise of liberty and freedom. But true happiness, joy, peace, prosperity and more equal true Holiness when we are completely His and He is completely ours!
It is the Glory of God, His presence manifested through the Spirit of Holiness and His many attributes which distinguish His people as a light to the world.
"Strength to Pursue Holiness" removes the traditional stigma that is often associated with Holiness. Holiness is not some new form of legalism, rather, it can lead to rich and vibrant pathways through the Spirit of Life that is in Christ to overcome the Law of Sin and Death.
Throughout the reader will find strength and reinforce a deeper reverence for the Lord as he or she embraces and pursues Holiness through the sanctification work of the indwelling Holy Spirit.
