You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

This is the highest of all the attributes of our God – holiness!

Holiness is the very excellency of the Divine nature: the great God is “glorious in holiness” (Ex. 15:11). He only is independently, infinitely, immutably holy. In Scripture He is frequently styled “The Holy One”: He is so because the sum of all moral excellency is found in Him. He is absolute Purity, unsullied even by the shadow of sin. His holiness is the very antithesis of all moral blemish or defilement. Of old, God appointed singers in Israel “that they should praise for the beauty of holiness” (2 Chron. 20:21). “Power is God’s hand or arm, omniscience His eye, mercy His bowels, eternity His duration, but holiness is His beauty” (Stephen Charnock).
