Spykman on sanctified living

The summons to sanctified living calls, therefore, not for superficial moralistic acts of self-exertion, but for a sturdy kind of ‘worldy’ holiness, rooted in wholehearted dedication to the Lord in all our Christian callings. It calls for covenant faithfulness, kingdom loyalty, in full reliance on an unfailing divine initiative. Such a life of obedience is motivated and directed by a faith which finds God's grace its source of strength
Gordon Spykman, Reformational Theology p. 497-8.
