“Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy” (Psalms 99:5).
What does the word “holy” mean? It means to be set aside away from everything that is bad or wrong. Our God is perfect. He doesn’t commit sin. To say that God is holy means there is no trace of evil in his character. We should never bow before anyone that is impure. Only the pure deserves our worship. God is that pure one!
More than once, I have walked into small town cafes where people had been using some rather vulgar language. And one or the other would say, “Better hush, here comes a preacher!” The fact is what they were saying, they were saying in God’s presence!”
How much greater should we be silenced in the presence of our holy God!
