Luke L. Keefer Jr.

“‘You shall be holy’ (Lev. 20:26) is as much a promise, guaranteed by God’s own resources of redemptive love, as it is a demand. Only when we see God’s personal resources placed at the point of our need does the slavish chain of ‘legal ought’ fall from our hands and feet.”

— Luke L. Keefer Jr. (1940-2010), on Christian holiness, in his book Everything Necessary: God’s Provisions for the Holy Life (1984). Luke’s biography will be released at the annual meeting of the Brethren in Christ Historical Society this October.
