Be Holy by Jason Garwood, a book review
Jason Garwood's "Be Holy" is a book that is much needed for the church. He reminds us that part of our calling as Christians is to live holy lives. We truly are to be different than the world around us. Unfortunately as Garwood points out holiness is a forgotten part of discipleship. He builds a good case for Christians to live holy lives, but along the way points out the wonderful truth that we only become truly holy through the blood of Jesus Christ and His righteousness being imputed to us. We are positionally holy because of the blood of Christ, which frees us up to pursue practical holiness in our lives. We pursue this holiness not to earn salvation but because we are thankful for it. 2 Corinthians 3:18 which I would say is the theme of the book, tells us that we are transformed into becoming more like Jesus as we behold His glory. Garwood's premise is that we behold the glory of God in the Gospel, And as we make the truth of the Gospel our daily, moment by moment focus we will be changed. Transformation is the work of God within us but it also requires effort on our part, Garwood presents this truth in a very balanced manner. Sanctification, us becoming like Jesus, is as one person said a "grace filled, gospel fueled effort." Garwood does a great job of laying this truth out in "Be Holy". One of my favorite parts was the part on commitment. We are to commit ourselves to holiness but in reality this is a commitment to God. If we just commit to be better people then our commitment isn't to God but to a system of morality, and holiness is much more than just mere morality. This book is packed with Gospel truth, it will inform you, it will challenge you, and it will convict you all for the glory of God
