Psalm 99 – For He Is Holy

HOLINESS TO THE LORD…HIS PEOPLE WILL BE IDENTIFIED AS!

Life With CD

I love a good refrain. A good part in a song that keeps us on track with the song’s basic message. Get a good line and repeat it and it sinks in.

No prizes for guessing which line grabbed me in this Psalm. I love the escalation of the instruction. Verse 3 – praise His name because He is holy. Verse 5 – worship at His footstool because He is holy. Verse 9 – worship at His holy mountain because He is holy. Love it, love it, love it. It reaffirms and reinforces a great reason to worship.

The reference to God being holy reminds me of a brilliant video explaining the concept as put together by the brilliant Bible Project. It’s worth checking for your own benefit and in the light of it see why the Psalmist’s instructions is so pivotal to our daily living.


For His Name’s Sake

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
