Providentially, God placed a book in my hands that starts off examining holiness. It challenges the reader to define holiness. In trying to do that I’m drawn to Isaiah 6:3 and Revelation 4:8 where the cherubim and seraphim in God’s presence cry out continually “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty”. What else could any created being, even the most powerful spiritual beings, do or say in the presence of Pure Holiness and once in His presence would ever want to leave or stop speaking it. They praise God continually because their eyes are constantly fixed on Holiness and consequently nothing else matters, not themselves, not others, not circumstances, only God. Holiness, by my definition, would not so much be what we do behaviorally as it would be where we fix the eyes of our minds and WHO we can’t stop talking about. Because the more our gaze and our lips are fixed on God and His holiness and off ourselves and others, the closer we will be to obeying the commandment found in Leviticus 20:26 and 1Peter 1:16 to be holy because “I, the Lord, am holy.” In fact, He’s all we’d want to think or talk about.
