God is holy. He is separated from imperfections (Leviticus 22:19-25), uncleanness (Leviticus 7:21), and sin (Isaiah 6:5). When something imperfect, unclean, or sinful stands before Him, it is judged and destroyed (Leviticus 10:1-11), unless God graciously chooses to purify it (Isaiah 6:7).
- How do God’s holiness and humanity’s sinfulness conflict with each other?
- If God is holy, why are human beings (which He created) not holy?
- Can God extend grace and forgive the imperfections and sins of humanity? How is this consistent with His holiness?
Woe of me, for I am a sinner, I am imperfect, and I unclean; whereas you, o God, are holy, holy, holy. Forever, you are perfectly and infinitely holy.
I praise you for your holiness, for who you are: how wonderful and pure, how awesome and beautiful, how fearsome and worthy of my complete devotion.
I praise you also because you, King, Lord of Hosts, are gracious; and in your great graciousness, which is equally eternal, perfect, and infinite as your holiness, you can purify me as you deem necessary so I be not consumed by your presence.
I recognize that you have chosen to purify me through Jesus Christ, your Son. I thank-you for Him. Amen.
