I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground.
Leviticus 11:44

A wedding invitee was digging postholes on his ranch when he suddenly remembered the wedding, which was to begin in less than half an hour. He hopped into his pickup and raced off to the church. At first congratulating himself on managing to slip into a pew before the bride began her procession, he soon noticed other guests casting glances his way. This was a formal church wedding — and he was in dirty work clothes! He was mortified.

The lyric to an angel praise chorus begins this way: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty” (Revelation 4:8). The triple use of “holy” indicates complete holiness. God is not just rather holy or considerably holy but wholly holy.

Singing such a song is all well and good for angels who have never sinned. But what about us? How can we, who swim in the sin-polluted pool known as humanity, presume to come near God and declare his holiness?

God chooses to see us as righteous if we ask to be clothed in Christ’s righteousness and washed in his blood. Do a mental assessment of your spiritual attire. What is preventing you from worshiping him “in the splendor of his holiness” (Psalm 29:2)?

O Lord, show me my sin …
