“Without holiness no man shall see the Lord.” God’s priest is one who sanctifies all for whom he acts; he is exalted at the right hand of the Father to give repentance as well as remission of sins. These two things cannot be separated in his glorious ministrations. That they cannot be is a matter of thankfulness and joy to all who desire to be saved from sin, and not merely from its penal doom.

But it is very different with those who dread the tribunal of God, and yet are in love with sin. They admire a priesthood which shall not by the life of its members remind them of the inexorable demands of holiness, which shall usurp the kingly as well as the priestly office of God’s king and priest, and claim the prerogative of dispensing with the precept of the law as well as that of remitting its penalty.

For the reference, Thomas E. Peck: Christ sanctifies all those for whom he acts as priest.
