God Is Holy!

By Gary Bowell

    "And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory" (Isa. 6:3).

    God has many attributes: Omnipresence, omnipotence, love, goodness, mercy, justice – yet when we are given a little glimpse into heaven, they are singing, "Holy, holy, holy."  All His other perfections are girded with holiness. This makes Him the God He is – He is absolutely holy. "God sitteth upon the throne of His holiness," states Psalm 47:8.

    We need to be reminded, not only that God is love, but that He is holy. And He has said, "Be ye holy, for I am holy."

"Thou God of power, Thou God of love,
Whose glory fills the realms above,
Whose praise archangels sing,
And veil their faces while they cry,
'Thrice holy,' to their God most high,
'Thrice holy' to their King."
