Another great teaching is learning to be. A great example of this is if you are married and others ask you what you and your spouse like to do? I love this answer for my relationship to the Lord but also my husband. "The truth of the matter is that I just like to look at my wife and wonder how it can be that she has devoted her life to me. A relationship that of mutual affection, admiration and devotion that is marked by open self giving to one another and total satisfaction in one another.
Another great strength in this study was the use of the trinity. It so lost anymore the value of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and how they work together in the Gospel. This was done so well. This alone is well worth the read of this book. This is a short read and as of right now on kindle a great price.
It went into great detail of the contempt of God. The nature of contempt is not retaining the knowledge of God in our lives, in our hearts and in our affections. Only when we are retaining the knowledge of God, then we are consumed by him. He is a consuming fire. It is much easier to declare war on our sin when we are consumed by the Lord.
Love this book. Get it, read it, majesty in the Lord and be blessed.
The reason this book stands on its own so well is the depth and importance of its subject matter. Scripture indicates that all creation exists to glorify God, so there can never be too much said about God and His absolute holiness. In this task, each of the contributing authors gives eloquent and challenging expression to a different facet of the Lord's defining attribute.
R.C. Sproul opens and closes the book with chapters on God's complete "otherness" (i.e. His holiness expressed in His absolute uniqueness) and God's justice and wrath. Sinclair B. Ferguson writes on the holiness of the Father in the context of the inter-Trinitarian relationship, Steven J. Lawson discusses God's holiness expressed in the person of Christ, and Alistair Begg explores the holiness of the Spirit. Thabiti Anyabwile examines the depth of our sin in the face of a Holy God. D.A. Carson ties the Church's high calling to be a "holy nation" to God's absolute perfection. W. Robert Godfrey shows how God's holiness made Christ's sacrifice on the cross absolutely necessary and absolutely merciful, and Derek W.H. Thomas delves into what this means for our sanctification. Finally, R.C. Sproul, Jr. fleshes out what it looks like to worship a holy God in the life of the family.
Holy, Holy, Holy serves as an excellent reminder of things that should always be in the forefront of our minds and lives as Christians. It functions well as a teaching tool (or a refresher course) and could also be used as a deep-thinking devotional to stir the reader to contemplate (and then act on) just who this God is that has created and called us.
