Oh yes! God equips us so that we may perfect holiness in the fear of God.

Holiness is Christ-likeness, and we are to engage in the progressive work of becoming more and more like Him.

Sabbath-keepers are equipped with a “tool” that no other professed Christians have. How so? Why so? Because the Sabbath is a call to keep a specific period of time “holy”. Week by week we have a special training opportunity!

In it we are to engage in the work of “perfecting holiness”.

One of our old writers speaks of the Sabbath this way — For the Sabbath-keeper the Sabbath “does contribute to the advance of his holiness… [and should] lift him higher with each successive recurrence.” (E.J. Waggoner.) To my mind, this relates to the concept of “perfecting holiness in the fear of the Lord”.

Hopefully this is not provocative in a negative way. Hopefully it is of use.
