Fear of God Devotional: Holiness – God’s Master Attribute
What can we learn from the holiness of God?
Jason Dohm explains in this video that out of all the attributes of God, holiness is God’s “master attribute.” God is holy. His holiness speaks to all His other attributes. He is holy in His love and mercy. He is separate and no one can compare themselves to God. No one can love as God can or be just as He can.
Paul says in Ephesians 5:1 that we are to be “imitators of God as dear children.” As Christians, we are to learn to imitate and act like God. As children of God, we should strive to be like our heavenly Father. This is the duty of the Christian – to learn how to imitate or act as God commands. To be set apart from the world, as He is.
1 Peter 1:16 (NKJV) – “Be holy, for I am holy.”
