Thanksgiving Reflections on the Holiness of God
Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness (Psalm 97:12).
In the Scriptures, holiness reveals the extraordinary nature of God. He stands alone, incomparable to anyone else, uniquely perfect in every way. God's holiness mirrors His flawless character, and His majesty transcends our comprehension. Such greatness calls for our praises and prompts sincere thanksgiving at the mere remembrance of His holiness.
Contemplating God's Holiness
Pondering God's holiness grants us clarity, revealing His attributes and unveiling the enormity of His love and grace. This deeper understanding naturally fosters a heart filled with gratitude for the marvelous and holy God intricately involved in our lives. Look to Mary, the mother of Jesus (Luke 1:46-55), as an inspiration for expressing thanksgiving when reflecting on God's holiness.
And like Mary, let your heartfelt thankfulness echo the holiness of God — His unwavering nature, perfect purity, and unparalleled uniqueness — impacting your heart profoundly. Recall how the holiness of God shapes our lives through the Messiah. Remember how Jesus justifies us, declaring us righteous before God, and sanctifies us in a transformative process. This beautiful exchange aligns our lives with the holiness of God.
As we move about today, carry gratitude in your heart, acknowledging the extraordinary holiness of God manifested through Jesus. Express heartfelt thanks for this profound exchange, rejoicing in righteousness, and embracing the transformative work of our gracious God!
