He is Holy

Exodus 3:5 Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”

Holy and pure, not a speck of blemish or error, our God is utterly separate from everything in this world. Even as Jesus Christ – full man, yet fully God – walked the face of this earth; He himself is perfect in all His ways, in every molecule of His being, Holy and righteous. It is a grave mistake to believe we can enter into His presence casually; pretentiously entering into prayer or communion with too familiar an attitude. His holiness is an all consuming purging fire. Nothing impure can stand therein. Yes, He is a God of love, mercy and grace. But we would be remiss to consider His majestic Holiness in direct contrast to our sinful nature carelessly. Our position should be in humble reverence, with homage and submission. While we have been consecrated by the sacrificial blood of Jesus, still we should enter His presence with vigilant recognition of His holiness.

Praise God, our HOLY God, for the perfect work of Jesus. By His sacrifice we are able to enter in to the Holy of Holies. We do not need to tip toe in, but we run in to the very protection of our Holy Father, our righteous King; the Almighty God. Joyfully, with great thanksgiving, we enter in as His children. But let us not be lackadaisical, forgetting His holiness surrounds us. “Be holy, for I am holy.” (Lev 11:44) Our liberties are precious freedoms secured by God through Jesus, but let us not forget how much it cost Him to secure it for us.

Today, as we set out to our churches and fellowships, entering into worship and opening the holy scriptures of God, may our hearts and minds regard His holiness humbly, with contrite reverence. May we worship Him and praise Him with thanksgiving for the privilege to enter into His presence by the perfect, complete work of Jesus. May we live our lives as changed people, a peculiar people; walking in holiness as He is holy.

1 Thessalonians 4:7 For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.

About athenammorris

Wife, mother, step-mother, and grandmother. I first came to the Lord in 1986. However, I backslid for a few years and rededicated my life to the Lord in 1990. Since then, my road through sanctification has been long and hard; mostly the result of my own rebellion. However in 2011, I finally I completely surrendered to His will and not my own and began to experience spiritual growth. My hope for this blog; people will be encouraged in their daily walk with the Lord. I'm a normal-joe-Christian just like every other Christian; struggling with the flesh, enduring trials, living life all with the intent of glorify and pleasing God. View all posts by athenammorris
