“Who is like you – majestic in holiness” Exodus 15.11b
We give holiness a very bad name! We tend to think of it in terms of what we should not do or what we ought to give up. Evidently the Bible thinks of holiness quite differently – holiness is something majestic.
This only makes sense if we see holiness in terms of what we gain rather than what we lose. If we are commanded to be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1.16) then surely we can expect to reflect something of this majestic holiness? It has to be more than us looking miserable because of the harsh demands that we feel God puts upon us. Holiness is more to do with having something than giving it up; it is about the presence of God within us.
The Bible commands us to be holy – not to act in a holy way – and this begins by us
taking seriously the truth that the presence of our glorious God dwells within us.
Whatever you feel, the majestic presence of God is with you wherever you go.
