“...Be holy because I, God, your God, am holy...” Leviticus 19.2 (MSG) “...this faith...is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.” Hebrews 11.1-2 (MSG)
last time, i couldn’t sleep because God just blew me away me with how holiness really meant “differentness” - him being holy refers to how different he is, not just being one of a kind, but him being the only one of his kind - the reason why he deserves the most wasteful and excessive devotion far above all.
“...I, God, your God, am holy...” Leviticus 19.2 (MSG)
i can’t sleep.
when i tell God, “you are holy,” do i really know what it means? in an age when holiness is religiously overrated, does this word “holiness” still arrest me? when i hear that holy means “set apart”, “consecrated”, does something even remotely stir in me?
