The Holiness of God
Holiness. We get different pictures of what that means. If we are a Christian, different adjectives come to mind: bland, boring, banal. Goodness in a strait jacket. But holiness is not primarily about your character and actions; first and foremost, holiness is about God. What we all need, and what we all really want, is an encounter with the Holy God. Our lives are obsessed with the idea of ‘more’: more money, more health, more happiness. But where is more to be found?
This week’s sermon looked at Isaiah 6—a dramatic portrait of one man’s encounter with the thrice-Holy God. For Isaiah, this experience was transformative. Hopefully it was transformative for us as well.
