The Bible Is the Foundation for Life

The following psalm highlights the eternal reign of Jehovah. God’s holiness is underscored three times.

 

PSALM 99:1-5, 9

The Lord reigns;
Let the peoples tremble!

He dwells between the cherubim;
Let the earth be moved!

The Lord is great in Zion,
And He is high above all the peoples.

Let them praise Your great and awesome name—
He is holy.

The King’s strength also loves justice;

You have established equity;
You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.

Exalt the Lord our God,
And worship at His footstool—
He is holy.

Exalt the Lord our God,
And worship at His holy hill;

For the Lord our God is holy.

 

God’s holiness does not imply that He is aloof or disconnected from His creation. God is intently aware of all that takes place in the universe. God’s holiness does, however, require equity, justice and righteousness on the earth.

People of faith who love and worship the One-true God can choose to demonstrate those same characteristics in their lives and dealings with others.
