Beauty of Holiness

Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples, give to the Lord glory and strength. Give to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come into His courts. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth. (Psalm 96:7-9)

Genuine praise always includes holiness. This from a redeemed people who once was not able to worship God in the splender of holiness. This is the work of the Holy Spirit who has enabled us to come into that place of worship in spirit and truth as God demands us to. Jesus makes this clear to us in John chapter 4, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” (John 4:23)  The glory of the Lord is more than just His majestic splendor. It includes all of the reasons for admiring and praising Him, such as His acts of creation (Psalm 19:2) and His greatest creation mankind (Psalm 8: 3-5). To worship the Lord for us today, is to create the atmosphere of love and devotion to the only One True God who is worthy of all praise and glory and honor! This love of giving of ourselves Paul describes in the NT: Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet – smelling aroma. (Ephesians 5:1) The Christian life is designed to reproduce godliness as modeled by the Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, in whose image believers have been recreated through the new birth. The beauty that God’s people in worship settings create is a foretaste of what heaven will be like in all of its splendor and glory in His presence.

Dear friends, when we live with an attitude of worship and praise, we reflect the beauty of the Lord in our lives that brings to Him the praises of His people in accordance to His will.

May the Lord bless your walk today!
