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).

For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe” 1 Thess. 2:13

The most effective weapon we possess as Christians for the work of the ministry is not pragmatic methodology, our TV shows, book clubs, music concerts, radio programs, our celebrities, famous pastors, or even our social alliances with other cultural moral entities–as effective as some of those things may be. The most effective weapon that any church or Christian possesses is the Word of God and the life lived in obedience to its claims.

This week Pastor Steve begins chapter three of Ephesians under the general theme of The Revelation (or relationship) of our Redemption. This is the last chapter of profound statements of the faith before Paul calls us to live obediently to the Lord and His Word. May this message on Ephesians 3:1-13 lift your hearts and minds afresh in worship to the King of kings and Lord of lords!
