Trying to find a suitable (explanation) for holy and an appropriate picture has been a journey of discovery for me this past week. I pray it will give you too, something to think about.
A search for images was a mishmash of unusual ideas from rocks, and symbols to animals and ‘things that hands could hold and touch’.
When I first heard the term that our God is a Thrice Holy God I knew that no image could ever express it. It really is far beyond human endeavours. Our Thrice Holy God – Holy Father, Holy Son and Holy Spirit in the composition of heaven, earth and the spirit. ONE GOD……. means our God is really BEYOND illustration or description.
The illustration above in some way gently expressed the somehow ‘beyond description’ ethereal idea of Our Divine God.
He is beyond sacred, beyond, EVERY HUMAN comprehension.
Yet, we can have personal RELATIONSHIP. How? Only through the CROSS. Christ has made THE WAY.
Now although ourselves we remain (far from Holy) we are being changed, sanctified through all of life. At the Cross His Sacrificial death and blood covering. Our acceptance of Christ means we are ‘covered over’ by the blood. The coming of His Holy Spirit, if given Lordship over our lives will continue this work in us forever and ever.
Now, not because of our worth………. but His Divine Love and Sacrifice, we can climb onto the lap of a Thrice Holy God and REST there.
Abba my Father!
This side of eternity let us enjoy today this RELATIONSHIP. a-men.
Beautifully written, Faye! And the picture compliments your words perfectly. “O blood and water which gushed forth from the side of Jesus, have mercy on us.” Hugs to you for the reminder to embrace the life-giving cross of salvation.
