HOLY – the indescribable adjective.

Good Morning!

        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. 

holy 2

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    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.
