A Calling to Perfect Holiness

By Elder Enoch Ofori Jnr

Introduction:

“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts”

1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.

2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory.

4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged (Isa. 6:1-7).

Our King, the LORD of hosts, requires holiness of the believer; He desires to share His holy nature with us, and in a holistic, all-encompassing manner. He commands us to be holy in all our conduct (1 Pet. 1:15). Yet the stark reality of our human condition is that we cannot by ourselves attain holiness. As the descendants of fallen Adam, we are conceived in sin (Ps 51:5) and live in the filth of sin (Rom. 5:12).
