Psalm 77:13 ” Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God?”

I Peter 1:15-16 tells us, “But just as He Who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ‘Be holy , because I am holy.’ ”  In these Scriptures, Peter is quoting at least three different areas in Leviticus that all say the same thing…Be holy, because I am holy.  The Lord is commanding us to reflect His holiness in our own lives, and as far as it’s possible…to live then a life with a pure heart and moral uprightness.

Revelation 4:8 ” Day and night they never stop saying: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was and is, and is to come.’ “

The Old Testament Prophet Isaiah also saw this vision in  Isaiah 6:3.  He saw the Lord on His throne with all the seraphs calling to one another, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.”  These magnificent creatures are continually encircling God’s throne giving glory, honor, and thanks to the Lord…And just think, someday we too will be able to join in that glorious chorus!

John 6: 67-69 ” ‘You do not want to leave too, do you?’ Jesus asked the Twelve. Simon Peter answered Him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that You are the Holy One of God.’ “

Other followers had turned away, but the Twelve Disciples knew something they didn’t.  They had the certainty  and  assurance only given to them by the Father above.  And this  faith that Jesus was truly the Messiah was evident in Peter’s response…”Who else can we follow, for only You have the Words of Life…only You are the long awaited Messiah.”
