Celebrating The Everlasting King – Day 15

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty

 

Songs about God entered our home through our little boy, Samuel, singing the ones he learned at Bible Study. One of his favorites was Holy, Holy, Holy. I remember one day at the grocery, Samuel in his cowboy hat, sitting in the cart, as a lady came right up to him and bent over to say into his face “what a cute little boy”. His startled response was to look her in the face and start singing at the top of his lungs “Holy, Holy, Holy …”. Even I jumped back and watched to see if she survived the moment.

 

Holiness is an attribute of God that is repeated throughout Scripture. When prophets met Holy God face to face oftentimes, they felt burnt, purified. God’s holiness is described as a consuming fire. Holiness is the essence of God. It separates Him from all. He is holy justice, holy love, holy mercy….

 

Most attributes of God are not a possibility for humankind. His omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence are not shareable. They are not human traits. He tells me to be holy for He is holy. He calls me to holiness, a separated-out life unto Him. He doesn’t call me to something that is impossible. He gives me His Son to make me holy. He gives me His Spirit so I may live holy. 

 

Revelation 4:8 Holy, holy, holy is theLord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.”
