Beauty of holiness

I was meditating on the beauty of holiness from Psalm 29: 2.  It says, “Give unto the Lord the glory due His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”  A note in my Bible says: the splendor of holiness is a greater beauty than even the glory of nature.

I thought about Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, Old Faithful, waterfalls, sunrises and sunsets, etc.  Then I thought about how His holiness is more beautiful than those.  Circuits hit overload.  I went to Psalm 8:4 in my mind.  “What is man that You are mindful of Him?”

That took me back to a mediation on Ephesians 2:7 which says, “That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace and His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”

To contemplate the beauty of His holiness certainly took my thoughts higher.  In fact so high, it made me wonder how I could ever allow the crassness of my flesh to taint my thoughts and actions.

Psalm 103:1 says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul!  O Lord my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty.”

This meditation is like a burning bush experience.  I must take off my shoes.
