God Is Holy

God Is Holy

Psalm 34:8; John 1:16–18; James 2:19

There is a difference between having an opinion that God is holy and gracious, and having a sense of the loveliness and beauty of that holiness and grace. There is a difference between having a rational judgment that honey is sweet, and having a sense of its sweetness. A man may have the former that knows not how honey tastes, but a man cannot have the latter unless he has an idea of the taste of honey in his mind.

Jonathan Edwards (1703 – 1758)
