The Holiness of God

I was telling my Sunday school class this past week that the very first book that I read in its entirety and the one book other than The Gospel According To Jesus book from Dr. John MacArthur that really had a wonderful and terrifying effect on my life was The Holiness of God from R.C. Sproul. I was a very young Christian at the time and reading this book just help me turn the corner towards who God really is and who I was. I can remember reading Isaiah’s vision in Isaiah 6:1-6 over and over, I must have read it hundreds of times until it just click one day, here we have one of the greatest prophets of God and he says:

“Woe is me, for I am ruined!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I live among a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”

The Holiness of God examines the meaning of holiness and why people are both fascinated and terrified by a holy God. This series closely explores God’s character, leading to new insights on sin, justice, and grace. The result is a new awareness of our dependence upon God’s mercy and a discovery of the awesomeness of His majestic holiness. Dr. R.C. Sproul says, “The holiness of God affects every aspect of our lives — economics, politics, athletics, romance — everything with which we are involved.” from Ligonier.org

The Holiness of God is Ligonier Ministries’ most popular and enduring series. Literally thousands of people have testified to a transforming encounter with God through this series. Here it is, click on the picture below for a teaching series on The Holiness of God by Dr. R.C. Sproul free to watch.

This also pours a little foundation for my post tomorrow, I have been in a few conversations lately about proper dress apparel for Christians going to church, should there be a proper dress apparel for going to church? Stay tuned in tomorrow for my convictions towards this topic… Until then, I leave you with this question…

What does the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban and the prophet Isaiah have in common?

Stay tuned for that one.

Soli Deo Gloria
