Holy God


"Our Savior was the true Brazen Altar, possessed of that power of enduring, in its awful intensity, the fires of God's holiness. He only could endure the Cross. He only could stand, unconsumed, under the storm of Divine Judgment. As the brass plates on the Altar protected it from the fervent heat and prevented it from being burnt up, so Christ passed through the fires of God's wrath without being consumed. He is mighty to save because He was mighty to endure." -Gleanings in Exodus by Pink, pages 243-244.

Formed out of dust, called out of darkness

Psalm 40:5
"Many, O LORD my God, are Your wonderful works
Which You have done;
And Your thoughts toward us
Cannot be recounted to You in order;
If I would declare and speak of them,
They are more than can be numbered."

To think that out of dust, God created living beings in His own image for His glory (Genesis 1:27). And to think that out of dust, He has created men and women who will live beyond time through eternity for His glory (Daniel 12:2, John 5:28-29).

Someday all will see and know His glory. And someday we will see ourselves in the full light of His truth (John 3:19-21). Until then, may the faces of God's people shine with a reflection of His light (Exodus 34:29, Numbers 6:24-26, John 9:5, Matthew 5:14-16).
