GOD’S GLORY AND THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS


“Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”
(Psalm 29:2)

Whenever we the people of God gather together in our services, it should be for one purpose – to worship the Lord our God. When we worship we give unto Him “the glory due unto His name.”


His name is His glory as it reveals and honors His nature and His works, especially His work of glorifying Himself in the salvation of sinners by His grace in and through Christ Jesus our Lord. We “worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” as we see His holiness revealed, honored, and magnified in the Person and finished work of Christ on the cross to redeem us and justify us by His shed blood and imputed righteousness.

In Christ and Him crucified the glory and holiness of the Godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) shine forth. This same glory and holiness shine forth in God’s redeemed people as we look to, rest in, serve, and as we grow in grace and in knowledge of Christ our Lord and Savior.
