How Holy?…

Here is a quote from the current book I am reading :Cross-Examined by Mark Meynell

“God’s holiness is in itself so far beyond human thought that a “super-superlative” has to be invented to express it”

Referring to the verse in Isaiah: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty”

Gods holiness is something so hard to explain that sometimes I feel we avoid giving it its fullness in Church sometime and this can cheapen other areas of our worship. eg. understanding the extent of His holiness compared to our sinfulness blows up His grace to amazing proportions which we respond to in praise. So lets not forget to proclaim His holiness alongside His love and all His other aspects as they are all increased in richness when they are all together.
