God calls us to be holy, but we can't make ourselves holy. What's the answer to this conundrum? The gospel! God is justified in commanding us to be holy, because He first calls us saints. Understanding our identity in Christ is key to becoming holy, because sanctification isn't a self-help program, but a work of God within us.
