God is Holy, Holy, Holy

And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” Isaiah 6:3 (NIV)

I started out in the TV industry as a scriptwriter. 

In many ways writing scripts is still the thing I love most. 

These days I manage a team of producers, scriptwriters and directors and together we make programs that keep a 24/7 channel going. However, given the chance I’d still choose to write scripts all day.

Recently I had the opportunity to do just that for a 13 episode tv show which explores how gospel music lyrics can help us see God better. This kind of thing is right up my alley.

One of the songs was all about the holiness of God. I started doing some research reading and came across this quote by R. C. Sproul: 

“The Bible says that God is holy, holy, holy. Not that He is merely holy, or even holy, holy. He is holy, holy, holy. The Bible never says that God is love, love, love, or mercy, mercy, mercy, or wrath, wrath, wrath, or justice, justice, justice. It does say that He is holy, holy, holy, the whole earth is full of His glory.”

I read this and thought how beautiful and true it is.

And how rarely we remember that God is sacred, divine, pure and wholly worthy of our worship. 

How often we forget that God is holy, holy, holy. 

How does viewing God as holy, holy, holy change the way you worship him today?
