Ascription Of Glory

I am discovering that many Christians are not really comfortable with the holy attributes of God. In such cases, I am forced to wonder about the quality of their worship. The word "holy" is much more than an adjective saying that God is a holy God. It is an ecstatic ascription of glory to the triune God. Everything that appears to be good among men and women must be discounted, for we are humans. Abraham, David, Elijah, Moses, Peter, and Paul—all were good men, but each had his human flaws and weaknesses as members of Adam's race. Each had to find his own place of humble repentance. Because God knows our hearts and our intentions, He is able to restore His believing children in the faith! So, we should be honest and confess that much of our problem in continuing fellowship with a holy God is that many Christians only repent for what they do, rather than for what they are!

Verse

Yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. 1 Peter 1:18

Thought

Many Christians only repent for what they do, rather than for what they are!

Prayer

Lord, I know that I am a sinner saved by grace. When I come to You for forgiveness, that is how I come. Thank You for loving me so much that You would bestow such rich grace on me.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
