The greatness of our God demands that we worship Him in a certain way. When God speaks, He shows Himself to be such a mighty, glorious, cedar-breaking, wilderness-shaking God that only worship “in the splendor of holiness” is fitting, worship with reverence and awe. In David’s temple, this splendor was communicated through sights like rich embroidered curtains, smells of sweet incense, colors like glittering, glinting gold, sounds like mighty trumpet blasts, and shining white robes, all designed to be powerful yet pale reflections of the glory of heaven. As we come to worship this morning, we should pray that God would enable us to recover a vision for worshiping in the splendor of holiness.
