Here’s what I’ve been thinking about this week.
Have I lost sight of the holiness of God?
Have I lost sight of his wrath?
Have I lost sight of his sovereignty?
Have I lost sight of his power and majesty?
Have I lost sight of how serious he is about sin?
Have I lost sight of how much he hates evil and injustice?
He is loving and gracious but have I made him weak by only thinking about these parts of his character?
I was reading how Isaiah reacted when he was before the Lord in Isaiah 6. He reacted with despair for his life. He recognized God as holy and saw his own sinfulness. Even the angels covered their faces showing reverence to God. Perhaps we should take a hint from this before we rush into the presence of God each day. Perhaps we need to take a new look at his holiness.
Then there is John’s reaction in Revelation 1. It says John fell at his feet as if he were dead.
Do we really understand who God is? holy and righteous
Do we really understand who we are? sinful and unworthy
Do we really understand what Jesus has done for us in saving us? He’s created a way for us to have a relationship with this powerful, holy, majestic God.
Revelation 4:8 “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.”
