God Is Holy
Construction Zone 3: The Goodness of God
How good is God?
God is holy, which means He is perfectly good. Isaiah 6:3b – Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!
This Truth Makes
In Isaiah 6, the prophet Isaiah gets a little peek at the glory of God, and it changes him forever. When Isaiah saw God’s holiness, he cried out, “Woe is me!” Isaiah realized
that he was a helpless sinner, and that he needed forgiveness!
If we will not believe that God is holy, then that means we think He is less than perfect. An imperfect god would not really be a god worth serving or worshipping. A sinful god would be just like us – we need a perfect God Who can rescue us from our sins, not a fellow sinner. God is set apart from all sin because He is holy.
God is very serious about His own glory and honor. He expects us to do all we do in a way that will honor His glory. 1 Corinthians 10:31 – Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
