"God is Holy."
October, 22nd 2017 -Pastor Keith Cromie
God is good. God is love. God is holy.
Which statement are you most thankful for?
Our minds are encouraged that God is good. Our hearts filled with peace as we consider the love which God himself defines and demonstrates.
But what do we do about the holiness of God?
For some, discussing the holiness of God was expected, like those who were waiting for the other shoe to drop. Yes, God is good, but…. Yes, God is love, but…
Our concerns are natural but not warranted. The holiness of God points to His glorious perfection in all His attributes. Like a diamond but without the flaws, like the most majestic view without cloud or smoke, like light in its most pure form, God’s holiness is his perfect beauty and this can evoke awe and wonder in the hearts of His children.
Consider the declarations of the Psalmist concerning the holiness of God:
Sing to the Lord, you saints of his; praise his holy name. Psalm 30:4
For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Psalm 33:21
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. Psalm 68:5
I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel. Psalm 71:22
Your way, O God, is holy. Psa. 77:13
Oh sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. Psalm 98:1
Let them praise your great and awesome name! Holy is he! Psalm 99:3
Our God is holy, holy, holy! (Isa 6:3; Rev. 4:8) Let’s worship him in the beauty of his holiness!
