Re:Verse passage – Hebrews 10:19-25 (day four)
Our culture today has lost their reverence for God. Recognition for and respect of the holiness of God seems to be a thing of the past. There was a day when even non-believers had respect for our holy God. Those days are gone.
Even for believers in Christ, there is a failure to remember what our salvation has cost. It was the blood of Christ. He gave His life so we can have forgiveness of our sin. When we approach God in prayer…in worship…or in study of Scripture, we should do so in reverence and awe of God’s holiness. Casual or flippant attitudes disregard the sacredness of the love and work of salvation.
We must never forget the high cost of salvation. Whether we are in corporate worship or private devotion, always remember that God is a holy God who desires our holiness as well. Our holiness, rather than our comfort and safety, is the goal!
