The Glory of God

Caught in this dilemma, what are we Christians to do? We must like Moses cover ourselves with faith and humility while we steal a quick look at the God whom no man can see and live. The broken and the contrite heart He will not despise. We must hide our unholiness in the wounds of Christ as Moses hid himself in the cleft of the rock while the glory of God passed by. We must take refuge from God in God. Above all we must believe that God sees us perfect in His Son while He disciplines and chastens and purges us that we may be partakers of His holiness.

By faith and obedience, by constant meditation on the holiness of God, by loving righteousness and hating iniquity, by a growing acquaintance with the Spirit of holiness, we can acclimate ourselves to the fellowship of the saints on earth and prepare ourselves for the eternal companionship of God and the saints above. Thus, as they say when humble believers meet, we will have a heaven to go to heaven in.


How dread are Thine eternal years,

     O everlasting Lord!

By prostrate spirits day and night

     Incessantly adored!


How beautiful, how beautiful

     The sight of Thee must be,

Thine endless wisdom, boundless power,

     And awful purity!


Oh how I fear Thee, living God!

     With deepest, tenderest fears,

And worship Thee with trembling hope,

     And penitential tears.

          Frederick W. Faber

Verse

Our father disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. Hebrews 12:10

Thought

We must believe that God sees us perfect in His Son while He disciplines and chastens and purges us that we may be partakers of His holiness.

Prayer

Father, let us fear Your holiness and worship You with trembling hope.
