No one of God’s attributes is more or less present in Him. All of God is all of His attributes all of the time. That’s hard to fathom for mankind; indeed, it is God Himself who said “My ways are not your ways.” In order to aid our knowledge of Himself, God has deemed it appropriate that one and only one of His attributes be listed in the superlative in Scripture. That attribute is His holiness. For this introductory sermon in this mini-series from Isaiah, we begin by looking at what happens when a mere mortal is confronted with the holiness of God.

Having a right understanding of who God is as He presents Himself in Scripture is paramount for understanding ourselves.
