The Holiness of God -Chapter One-

 14.10.10



I am joining again a great group of readers at Challies. It has been a joy get to know some great bloggers, thinkers and God lovers through this "reading- along" group; so if you are visiting this place  from Challies, please leave a comment; I would love to "meet" you!

This time the book we are reading is The Holiness of God by R.C Sproul, a great pick, a book already known as a classic in the Reformed faith. Today we are talking only about chapter one.

Chapter One. The Holy Grail

One thing, that is it, only one thing I will share of this chapter that I do not want to forget never. One thing in chapter one that every one needs to know.

We all need a specific moment in our lives, a "life transforming" moment:

"Being alone with God. A Holy God. An awesome God. A God who could fill our lives with terror in one second and with peace the next"

 This is the way to eternal life. Meeting alone with a Holy God, spiritually naked, on our knees, in awe and knowing  that we are not worthy of Him.

Living a moment like this changes our eternal life. Meeting alone with a Holy God in the quietness is what we need in order to live.

Have you been alone with God; a Holy God?

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
