Psalm 99 helps us to know how to begin living in this world until we live with Jesus forever. In order to be what God has called us to be, and in order to live the life of grace that he intends we must begin by understanding that life is based on right relationships. Life is full of relationships. God intended is to be that way. He created us as social creatures and he desires for us to live in community with him and with others. Our society is crazy about relationships. We are a culture of relationship watchers. Today we want to look at how we move from the absurd relationship model of our society to the true covenant model designed by God.
The first step in right relationship to God is to recognize who God is. Scripture tells us several things about who God is. We must recognize these traits in him so that we can fully understand his uniqueness and his character. God is holy. Holiness means to be set apart, perfect, spiritually pure or evoking adoration and honor. “Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.” Psalm 99:9 (NIV)
God is completely set apart from man in his character, his attributes and his purity. God is creator. God is the originator of all life. It began in his Spirit and came to being in His voice. So the best way to live here is to have a right relationship with God’
