Remember, God is good All the time!

I have studied the "beauty of Holiness" issue a number of times during my time as a Christian and Pastor. There are many different thoughts, and ideas on how it all works, and yet this morning when reading this chapter again a different thought occurred to me.
"What if the beauty part of this holiness issue is a complete transparency between you and Jesus?"
Now that would be beautiful! Imagine a time of worship where you and Jesus have no secrets, no cares, no worries, no problems. There is only trust, faith, fellowship, love and communication. that my friend would be beautiful!
If we would let our inhibition, fears, failures, past, and chains be stripped from us by the Holy Spirit. If we would get over ourselves, and not be concerned about what other people will think of us. If we would just worship Jesus with absolute honesty and transparency. This worship would be a work of beauty in true holiness!
How do we get holiness? First we must realize that we are nothing, and that our righteousness if as filthy rags. Then we must go to the source of all true holiness - Jesus our Lord and Saviour. His Spirit must live inside of us, work through us, and be visible in our actions, words and lifestyle. This is the only way to have any possibility of true holiness.
Mix an experience with the Holy Spirit with true honesty and transparency and you will have a recipe for something of true beauty!
Yours for true beauty and true holiness!
