Luke 1:49 “For he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.”

“When the Bible calls God holy it means primarily that God is transcendentally separate. He is so far above and beyond us that He seems almost totally foreign to us. To be holy is to be ‘other,’ to be different in a special way. The same basic meaning is used when the word holy is applied to earthly things.” (Bible.org)

  • 2 Timothy 3:168 ESV “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness.”
  • Hebrews 4:12 ESV “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
  • Matthew 4:4 ESV “But he answered, “It is written, “’Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
  • 1 Samuel 2:2 ESV “There is none holy like the Lord: for there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.”

God is holy. He himself is completely absent of any type of sin and He is essentially absolutely perfect. He is above all others and no one can compare to Him. So that does that mean? God’s love is holy love, His anger is holy anger, and His mercy is holy mercy. What more could we ask for?
