Hello everybody we trust you are well.
In Isaiah 6 we are told that the seraphim called to each other, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”
That God is holy means he is endlessly, always perfect. And his standard for us is perfection as well. “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect,” Jesus says in Matthew 5:48. That’s why we need Christ. Without Christ taking the place for us and dying for our sins, we would all fall short of God’s holy standard.
Thankfully, as followers of Christ we will never have to experience God’s holy wrath. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, the penalty for our sins was paid and we were imputed (credited) with Christ’s righteousness. Now, when God looks on us, he sees Christ’s perfect holiness. It is only in this that we can hope to stand in the presence of the pure, perfect, Holy God.
We have so much to be thankful for.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Mike and Daphne
