We say that our God is a holy God. Do we really have any idea what holiness is? One image from Revelation 4 says, “there before me was a throne in heaven … and the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne… from the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God… In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, … Day and night they never stop saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.”(vss.1-8) No earthly image can fully depict the true holiness, and awesome magnitude and majesty of our God. We must never think that we are worthy in ourselves to stand before this God. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23) Only by the blood of Christ can we approach that throne. It is only in the righteousness He alone gives that we are worthy to enter. Our life is in humbly kneeling before the cross with the greatest of thanksgiving on our lips.
