Quotes to Consider

Herman Hoeksema: “From ... the Old and the New Testaments, the following becomes evident. First, holiness is primarily a divine attribute. God is holy: he is the Holy One in the absolute sense. Second, especially in his holiness God is God, the one who is of and by himself and who is distinct from all creatures. The reason for this is that holiness denotes that he is the sole good, the implication of all perfections, and that as such he seeks himself, is consecrated to himself, the absolutely self-centered one. Third, as the Holy One he is also the absolute sovereign. Being ultimate goodness in himself and consecrated unto himself, he seeks himself and his glory also in all creation and is its absolute Lord, having the sole prerogative to declare what is good and to impose his will upon every creature. Fourth, especially the revelation of God’s holiness as divine holiness is his glory. Fifth, for this very reason, man’s holiness can only consist in being God-centered and consecrated with all his heart, mind, soul, and strength to the living God” (Reformed Dogmatics, vol. 1, p. 144).
