Genesis 6:9-7:16 :: The Beauty of Holiness


How would you describe holiness – both what holiness is and what holiness does?

As King David meditated on the Flood he said, “The LORD sat enthroned at the Flood, and the LORD sits as King forever” (Psalm 29:10), after he exhorted all to, “Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 29:2b).

King David understood holiness is what God is. In other words, to define holiness one must define God.

He also understood holiness does what God does. In other words, all of God’s actions are holy.

Proverbs 1:7 states, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.”

As you meditate on the Flood, begin by seeking and knowing the nature and character of God.

Understand how holiness reacts to wickedness.

And, understand how the grace of God overcomes wickedness and delivers from death.

This means as you meditate on the Flood you will also need to meditate on the Cross.

(Psalm 29; Heb 11:7; Ezek 14:12-20; Ex 2:3; John 10:7-10, 14:6; Rev 3:20; Mark 14:15-16)

Hebrews 6:9-20 :: Heavy Attachment


Because Jesus is better we are confident of better things, things that hold onto salvation through faith and patience.

God does not hide Himself from our lives – our deeds, desires, and diligence.

Rather, God gives us His sure promises which are to be continual sources of encouragement.

Attach yourself to hope. Not wishful hope, but the confident expectation that God will do exactly as He has promised.

This hope anchors, attaches, our souls to Him in a manner that withstands every storm of life.

(Heb 1:4, 4:1, 13, 5:11, 9:3, 10:20, 23, 11:1, 39; 12:2; Gen 22:17; Ex 32:13; Isa 45:23; Jer 22:5, 49:13; Num 35; Jos 20; 2 Cor 1:3-7)
