Week 5 Devo – WEDNESDAY

Freedom: Holiness

Have you ever felt unappreciated for something? What do you wish people would appreciate about you, but they rarely notice? Now, a little more convicting: When was the last time you praised God for being holy? It is easy to praise God for His faithfulness, His love, or anything that makes us immediately feel good. God’s holiness isn’t usually the first thing people think of to praise Him for. His holiness doesn’t make us warm and fuzzy, but it means He is perfect. He is trustworthy, unchanging, wise and good because He is holy. He couldn’t be these things perfectly if He weren’t set apart from our sinfulness. So we don’t praise God for how He makes us feel, but for who He is – holy and perfect.                                                       

How can you remember to thank God regularly for His holiness?
