On this topic of the holiness of God, the author starts by attempting to understand the meaning behind the Hebrew term used for the English word "holy." Suggestions include holiness as separation and as an expression of relationship. The author then goes on to describe the holiness of God as revealed in Scripture.
Sometimes people speak about there being two types of Christians - those who show their faith by holy lives and those who do not. This is not biblical, since true faith transforms lives to be holy. There is no such thing as a carnal Christian. This thinking robs Christians of assurance and fills the church with unbelievers.
The struggle with sin in the Christian life can lead one to despair. This article shows that by focusing on the reality of our sanctification - the fact that we have already been made and are daily being made holy, and look forward to the future perfection of our holiness - will result in active waiting. This will shed light at the end of the tunnel.
