|Psalms 29:2 |
2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness1.
1 Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Scripture tells us that God seeks worshippers who will worship him in spirit and truth for God must be worshiped in spirit and truth. John 4:23-24. Your sinful nature must be crucified before you can worship God in Spirit and Truth; all other worships are an abomination to God. Now add to spirit and truth, the beauty of holiness: without holiness, no one will see the Lord. Heb 12:14. For God has not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. 1 Thes 4:7. Therefore having these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Cor 7:1. When you have crucified your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial, then you can worship God in spirit, truth, and the beauty of holiness.
