God Is Perfect And Set Apart

Big Truth:

God Is Perfect And Set Apart

Exodus 15:11; Leviticus 19:2; 2 Samuel 22:31; Psalm 18:30; Matthew 5:48

Bible Verse:

“There is none holy like the Lord: for there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.”

1 Samuel 2:2

Big Ideas:

  • God is perfect and everything He does is right.
  • God is the standard for all that is good.
  • God is different than us; He is set apart.

Bible Story:

Isaiah 6:1-6

God is holy and pure. His holiness is not a product of His nature; it is foundational to who He is. No one is holy like God. God is set apart from every other being because He is completely holy and does nothing that is unholy. Isaiah’s vision of God produces a reaction of worship and awe. This same reaction is had by all who are given a vision of God in His splendor and majesty throughout Scripture. Isaiah understands his own lack of holiness when he is faced with God’s. The only response to God’s holiness is worship and a crying out of “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts!” God is holy and set apart from all others.


God Is Holy – God Gives The Law

God is holy. This means that He is separate from all of creation. There is nothing like Him in existence and nothing that can even be compared to Him. He is complete, perfect, and separate in every single way possible. God commands that His people are to “be holy just as He is holy.” In our own imperfection, there is no way we can be holy, but in God’s grace He gave His people the law. The law points us to who God is, our need for Him, and that our only hope to become holy like God is through the shedding of innocent blood on behalf of the guilty.
