Good Day Worshippers
When we say that god is Holy what do we mean, Holy means being set apart, sacred, hallowed, it means purity, Godliness and also means absolute perfection.
There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. 1 Samuel 2:2
Being holy is facet or an attribute of God, but it carries a lot of who God is, God is
hallowed, God is sacred, God is pure (unstained) and God is full of perfection
absolute perfection. That is Holy, Look at the verse in 1 Samuel 2:2 God is
Holy and there is no other God on earth and heaven who can be or is like him,
or even gods which are worshipped by men.
Then He comes down to mankind and he says in Leviticus 11:44 “For I am the LORD
your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am
holy”. Again in Leviticus 19:2 he speaks “Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your
God am holy”. So God wants us to be Holy as he is Holy. So then what
does it mean to be Holy?
What does it mean to walk in holiness, God has standards that he adheres to God has
specifics that he set for his life. God is set apart, God wants us to be set
apart from everybody. Go desires and longs that we be set apart, walk and live
upon Godly principles not defiling our lives with the rest of the world. So
when God says Be Holy as I Am Holy, simply put, be set apart as I am set apart.
Walk in godliness, live on a biblical standards, be distinct from everyone else. That’s
being Holy; it’s a living and walking in Purity and living as such. It is not easy,
yes but we can live as such to the glory of God.
Remember our lives are meant to bring glory to god and living a holy life alone is
already a huge sacrifice, A worship without words but just action. Living holy
is a huge way of worshipping God, because God is glorified by such a life, he
takes pleasure in his Holy creation.
Even the chiefest of sinners, David understood and knew the power of holiness and
that God had given to him this power to be living as a holy person Psalms 51:11
“Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not the spirit of thy holiness
God has given a Spirit of Holiness unto us and he then says Be Holy and I am Holy. God
wants us not just to worship but He wants to worship from a place were we are
standing on holiness and right standing with God. Worshipping is not just
singing but laying down our lives as instruments of worship, to bring glory and
honour to God.
“Worship Him in the Beauty Of His Holiness”
