|And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory” (Isaiah 6:3, ESV)!On God’s Top Ten list, the very first rule, the commandment that earns the #1 spot, states who He is. “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me”(Exodus 20:2–3).
The Church has lost this high and exalted view of God. We’ve grown so cozy with God that we forget who He really is. We have embraced the comfort of His nearness and ignored His holiness. We have emphasized the security of His love at the expense of His transcendence. God is not “the man upstairs.” He’s not a mild, old codger with a white beard. God dwells in unapproachable light. The Bible teaches that no one can see God and live. He is high and lifted up. He is ineffable glory.
