The word itself is rather daunting and seemingly impossible, not to mention we perceive rather ho-hum. God is holy, I am not. Forget it, it's not even worth trying. If that were the case, God would have never instructed us to strive for holiness. The reality is we can't be holy apart from Him. And speaking of the
ho-hum of holiness....
"How little people know who think that Holiness is dull. When one meets the real thing... It's irresistible." CS LEWIS
And when it comes to God, we should be gloriously ecstatic that he is Holy. If not, we are in deep trouble, because then he would be just like you and me.
"God, being the Eternal, holy God, cannot change. He will not go from better to worse. You cannot think of God being any less holy than he is now, any less righteous than he is now. God must remain infinitely holy, fixed, forever unchanging in holiness. He cannot go from worse to better for the simple reason that God, being absolutely holy, cannot go beyond himself. He cannot get any holier than he is now, or go from less good to better. God is not better or greater, he is simply already the apex, the fountain, the top and great." AW TOZER
