God's Holy People - Philippians 1: 1-2

The apostle Paul God's holy servant
addresses God's chosen holy people
speaking with true royal authority
looking to God from His holy steeple

God here speaks to His very own
all of those God regards as saints
draped in the shed blood of Christ
the righteous badge God has known

The people of God are His elect
chosen before the world began
in faith endowed with divine righteousness
God's blessing put on sinful man

For this sin, God sent His beloved son
to be the sacrifice our sin to atone
on the cross, Jesus paid the price
acceptable to God who accepts no clone

God's word speaks of the holy necessity
without holiness, no one shall see the Lord
every unholy being God will reject
make sure your sins are under His sword

("Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,
To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.")
Philippians 1: 1-2 (ESV)

"Without holiness, no one shall see the Lord"..... a reminder that makes us shudder. Though we are God's chosen people, without being contrite over our sins and without choosing the path of righteousness, we wo't be eligible to be called God's chosen people. Great thoughts, Gordon

Only Holiness can draw us closer enough to touch the hem of his gown, this is so full of inspiration and hope, thank you for sharing this Gordon.

We only have to open our ears and hearts to listen to his words. Hope you're well Gordon, just back from Wales, I never seem to be at home lately, just one more trip planned, Italy in a couple of weeks. Then I'm staying put for a while lol. Tom
