Whenever we catch a true glimpse of the holiness of God, it draws us deeper into worship and gives us a greater desire to glorify His name. In Psalm 29:1-2, David expresses this very idea, encouraging God's people to passionately glorify His name, and to worship the Lord "in the beauty of holiness". The more we understand the holiness of God, the more we understand just what a beautiful paradox it really is. The One who no one can approach, apart from Christ, is completely approachable, in Christ. The One who no one can ever be like, apart from Christ, makes us like Him, in Christ. By reckoning ourselves as dead, we find real life. By becoming slaves, we gain freedom. By experiencing suffering, we receive joy. As we consider these and other beautiful paradoxes, as revealed in God's character, God's works, and God's ways, we too can catch another glimpse of the holiness of God, and be drawn deeper into worship, having a greater desire to glorify Him with our lives.
