Daily Devotional: The key to God’s character

Revelations 4:8 for September 19, 2009throne revelation chapter 4 verse 8

~Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings.

Day and night they never stop saying: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”~

The apostle John wasn’t the first person to have the privilege of looking into heaven. In the Old Testament, the prophet Isaiah was given a similar vision [Isaiah 6:3]. Both John and Isaiah had the overwhelming experience of seeing the place where God has his throne. they both saw that God is constantly surrounded by special angels who exist to worship him. The primary way they worship is to draw attention to God’s holiness.

God’s holiness is the foundation on which the whole universe rests. If he ever did anything that was selfish or unjust, everything would begin to fall apart. But God, with all his power and other unlimited abilities, has never done anything wrong, and he never will do anything wrong. We will always be able to trust him, and he will always inspire us to pray and work to be holy—because he is holy.

Ask God to help you to be more holy, as he is.
