Isaiah 6:1-3 “In the year King Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.  Above it stood the seraphim…And one cried unto another, and said Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory.”
Scripture teaches that man is made in the image of God.  Consider the many ways we see this similarity between God and man.  Man can create and invent, man can appreciate beauty, think and plan, man can laugh and cry.  Man can love and show mercy and compassion.  In many ways man demonstrates the evidence of this kinship with God and His image.  Yet it is very apparent that man and God do not share an identical image.
There are many attributes that describe God, but one stands above all the others:  God is Holy.
Of all the attributes that describe man, surely there is one also that stands alone: man is desperately wicked.
You are familiar with these verses from the Bible, verses you do not think about too often.
Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it.” Romans 3:10 “...there is none righteous, no not one.”
Today, think about the holiness of God.  Holy, holy, holy is God.
Think also about how holy He is and consider how unholy you are.
