We live in a casual, familiar world. Our work attire is “business casual.” Outside of work, jeans, T-shirts and flip-flops are the norm. Dining is casual, often on the run. We are concerned with living comfortably. We sometimes fail to show respect for authority. Even our worship can take on this casual tone, if we aren’t careful.
Sometimes we approach God casually. I think I do – because it’s not possible to completely comprehend God. Rather than embrace the mystery that is God, we tend to “humanize” Him. We want to understand our Lord as we understand ourselves. This is to take away His Deity.
Who among the gods is like you, Lord?
Who is like you— majestic in holiness,
awesome in glory, working wonders?
God is Holy. We are not. We can’t know what true holiness is because we can never be holy, apart from the work of Jesus at the cross. True worship accepts that we can’t comprehend this significant attribute of God. So we must come to God with child-like awe, constantly amazed at the majesty and holiness of our Creator. Consider all that God is, all of His attributes, as you come to Him in worship.
