God Is Holy

Isaiah 6:1-3. In the year of King Uzziah's death,  I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple.  Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called out to another and said, "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory."

As we prepare for our new church year our focus should be on God.  After all, we exist to glorify God.  God's Holiness is the one attribute that stands out among all His attributes.  Isaiah the prophet experienced the holiness of God after King Uzziah died.  King Uzziah had reigned for many years and he offered stability in the land.  His death was a blow to the Jews and to Isaiah.  Isaiah 6:1-3 teaches there is a  greater king than who we see in this world  He is a king who is glorious.  He is holy. He is above us but near us.  He is not like us but understands our finiteness.  God is holy.  We do not make Him more holy, but we can grow in the application of His holiness in our life.  Scripture commands us to be holy. "Thus you are to be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy; and I have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine. (Leviticus 26:20)."  God's holiness calls us to be holy unto Him.  This means we are set apart to serve Him.  This means we are to live differently and have different ambitions than the world.  Reflect on how God's holiness directs our steps.
