I looked closer at the holiness of God:
1Thess 4:7 (KJ2000) ” 7 For God has not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. ”
Exod 15:11 (KJ2000) ” 11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? ”
Rom 6:22-23 (KJ2000) ” 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Exod 3:5 (KJ2000) ” 5 And he said, Draw not near here: put off your shoes from your feet, for the place on which you stand is holy ground. ”
Rev 4:8 (KJ2000) ” 8 And the four living creatures had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come. ”
Jude 1:17-25 (KJ2000) ” 17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 20 But you, beloved, building up yourselves in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And on some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 24 Now unto him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.”
Sometimes it doesn’t feel good to need a savior. It is like a man drowning who gets thrown a life preserver. It feels desparate but also desparatately thankful.
Father who is in heaven I need YOu. I need You Jesus. I need YOu Holy Spirit.
O save = hosanna
John 12:12-13 (KJ2000) ” 12 On the next day many people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that comes in the name of the Lord.”
Part of the need to be saved when looking at the holiness of God is realizing I am not holy.
But He saves me. I know He can make me Holy.
I want Him to make me holy so that I can be in His presence more fully.
