God Is Holy

June 1


Think about it …

  • When have you seen or experienced something that you would describe as one-of-a-kind?

  • Consider that God is “one of a kind.”

    • Today we look at that quality … holiness.

    • And we consider that as His people, we are called to holiness.


Listen for why God is “one of a kind.”

Psalm 99:1-3 (NIV) The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. [2] Great is the Lord in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. [3] Let them praise your great and awesome name-- he is holy.


Set Apart

  • How should the world respond to God’s holy reign?

  • What motivated the psalm writer to write this hymn of praise?

  • Study the verbs. How do (or should) others respond in relation to the exalted Lord?


Set Apart

Note the possible meanings of “holy.”

  • Current dictionary definition:

    • dedicated or consecrated to God or a religious purpose; sacred

  • Biblical meaning

    • to be distinct, separate, in a class by oneself

    • unique, with no rivals or competition.


Set Apart

  • What is the significance of the mention of the cherubim?


Set Apart

  • God is terribly awesome and holy, forgiving and punishing. What does that say about the casual “God-is-my-buddy” approach or the presumptuous “God-is-my-bellhop” approach we often take in worship and prayer?

  • This psalm invites us to tremble, praise, exalt and worship this Lord. What are some ways to practice those attitudes each day?


Listen for attributes of God.

Psalm 99:4-5 (NIV) The King is mighty, he loves justice-- you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right. [5] Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.


Righteousness and Justice

  • What words and phrases were used to describe God’s reign in Israel?

  • How does this psalm describe the quality of God’s reign?

  • How does God’s justice, fairness, or righteousness impact your daily routine?

  • These verses again end with “He is holy.” How do we become convinced that God is distinct, separate, in a class by Himself ?


Listen for names of people who worshiped God

Psalm 99:6-9 (NIV) Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the Lord and he answered them. [7] He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.


Listen for names of people who worshiped God

[8] O Lord our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds. [9] Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.


A Lifestyle of Worship

  • So who communicated with God?

  • How did God show Himself to Israel?

  • How did God deal with the sins of the Israelites?

  • What does God’s treatment of Israel reveal about His character?


A Lifestyle of Worship

  • What concluding instructions did the psalm writer offer God’s people?

  • What do these verses teach us about a lifestyle of worship?

  • How can we tremble at God’s holiness yet still have an intimate relationship with Him?


Application

  • Surrender

    • If you have never done so, submit to God’s holiness by placing your faith in Christ for salvation

    • Confess your sinfulness, repent, and accept God’s forgiveness

    • Tell a friend (or an enemy!) about your decision


Application

  • Commit

    • Honor God’s holiness by praising God

    • Be aware of His presence in every activity … not just during Bible study or prayer

    • At the end of each day, journal how God made Himself known to you


Application

  • Submit

    • Choose to be set apart, distinct … holy.

    • Ask God to identify a specific area in your life where you need to honor His holiness

    • Consider joining with an accountability partner for this process
