Are you gettin' after holiness?

The aggresive pursuit of holiness is too often ignored rather than tackeled head-on. Bob at In the Clearing has a great post he titled Help, Lord! I need to be holy! Here's a taste of what he says:

It's a fundamental building block in the foundation of the Christian faith: the belief that a Christlike life is actually possible, or at least approachable, when one is "in Christ" (to use Paul's characteristic descriptor). We say it is God Himself who makes this possible, God who empowers us for righteousness, and yet, of course, there is this gap--I'll call it the righteousness gap--between the life we believe to be possible in Christ and the life that we actually live.
