God is holy

Sometimes I forget that. It’s easy to remember that God is love. That He is good. That He is with us.

But God’s holiness? That’s different. A little scary. 

I am in a Bible study where we are going through the prophetical books of the Old Testament. It’s AMAZING. One theme that keeps repeating in every one of these books is the idea that God is holy. He is God. He is not to be forgotten or manipulated. He is not something we check off our daily “to do” list. He doesn’t want bits and peices of us. He wants everything we have.

He does not allow people to neglect Him forever – the prophets make that clear. But He is working all the time to draw us to Himself. That is also clear, all throughout scripture.

God is love. He is good. He is with us. And He is holy. What an amazing, exciting thought!
