May 1

1 Samuel 1Luke 2:21-52

Thought from Today’s Old Testament Passage:

Hannah, who was once a woman of a sorrowful spirit, had so learned to delight herself in God, that she could dwell upon the different points of the divine character with joyful adoration. Like others of God’s instructed people, she was very happy in the thought of God’s holiness. Notice the second verse [chapter 2]: “There is none holy as the Lord.” I have heard many persons praise the Lord for His goodness, but it is a far higher and surer mark of grace when a man can praise the Lord for His holiness. Is it not noteworthy that in heaven, the abode of happiness, which happiness springs mainly out of the presence of their God, the adoration of the blessed chiefly tends to this point, the reverent celebration of His holiness? We read of the seraphim, “And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of Hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory.” … Does it seem as if unholiness covers all things, breaking forth like a flood, and deluging the earth with its black and filthy waters? Yet the Lord sitteth upon the throne of His holiness, and cutteth asunder the cores of the wicked. Let this be our song in the night: “There is none holy as the Lord.”

Charles H. Spurgeon, The Treasury of the Bible (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House, 1962), Vol. 1, page 622
