The Attributes of God | Week 3: Holy

By Erwin W. Lutzer

You and I, the real you and I, are what we are when we stand before God’s presence. When we are faced with the presence of God, we discover the true depths of ourselves and are undone. This week, Pastor Lutzer speaks of God's holiness in Revelation 4:8.

"And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say,
'Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
who was and is and is to come!'"

By Erwin W. Lutzer

Our holy God dwells not only in the high and holy places, but among us in our weakness. This week, Pastor Lutzer teaches on Isaiah 57:15.

"For thus says the One who is high and lifted up,
    who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
I dwell in the high and holy place,
    and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly,
    and to revive the heart of the contrite."
- Isaiah 57:15
