Psalms 145:17    “The Lord is Righteous in all His ways, and Holy in all His works.”
The holiness and righteousness of God is both wonderful and overwhelming.  Wonderful in that it is a great comfort to know that your world is under the care of a God who loves you, and is holy and righteous in every way.  It is overwhelming because as you consider Him, you are bound to then consider yourself.  You see a great gap between who He is and who you are.
Awareness of this difference, He is Holy, you are not, is the first step toward bridging the gap. Listen to what He says;
2 Corinthians 6:18 and 7:1 “I will receive you, and be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty. Having these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
You began by thinking about the love of God.  The Bible even says God is love.  Many today think about God being a loving God and do not consider His holiness. They think because He is a God of love that He will overlook rebellion and sin against Him. However, of all the wonderful attributes you could name, holiness must be at the top of the list.  But through Christ you can enter into His holy place.
Today, as you consider His Holiness, rejoice that He is Holy and He wants to receive you as a son or daughter.
