Remember that the purpose of your every breath, your every thought, and your every move is intended to glorify this Jehovah who saves. Make no mistake. We are talking about the Holy One of Israel who is a limitless, continuous, incredible weight of glory worthy of infinitely more praise than our feeble frames can muster. He is absolutely, one hundred percent holy and omnipotent. And yet, He knows your name and cares for you whom He has created in love. You can laugh it off, but God is still holy. You can deny that He exists, and He is still holy. You can play the harlot and worship another lover, and still, God is holy. Oh, to know what and who holiness is... Sing, child! Sing to the glory of the God who alone is the definition of splendor and light! Only in worship can you hope to contain, to hold, or accommodate the eternal weight of glory that is YHWH. He is upholding all things by the Word of his power (Hebrews 1:3). In him we live, and move, and have our being (Acts 17:28). Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you have given Jesus, that they may be one, as you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one. Amen.
