Exodus 15:11, Revelation 4:8c NIV 2011
Who among the gods is like you, Lord? Who is like you—majestic in holiness, awesome inn glory, working wonders?
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty; who was, and is, and is to come.”
Moses knew God is Holy before and after He defeated Pharaoh’s army. Moses led God’s people in singing God’s Praises. 15:1, “Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord.” Israel knew God is Holy. Psalm 77:13, “Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?” Isaiah knew God is Holy. Isaiah 6:3, “And they were calling one another: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty: the earth is full of his glory.’” The Apostle John stated God is Holy in his message to God’s faithful in the final book of the Bible. God’s Word reveals God is Holy.
1 Peter2:16, “for it is written, ‘Be holy, because I am holy.’” I love that Peter called us to be holy. Bible commentary, “To be holy is to be set apart—separated from sin…set apart to God.” Because I am a child of God through faith in Jesus Christ, I’m separated from sin. God can’t look at the evil within me because He is holy. At salvation I was set apart which involve daily time spent in prayer of confession and repentance for my sins. Thankful His Word reveals God is Holy.
How do others see God’s Holiness in us?
