Kodesh in Hebrew means to be “Set Apart”

You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

Leviticus 19:18

 

God sets the bar high and for good reason. The Hebrew word to be “set apart” is Kodesh. When God describes himself as holy, he is saying that he is different, or set apar from, any creature or created thing. He is transcendent, and in his perfect purity, he lacks nothing. God’s holiness is not an action he does; it is simply who he is. Fortunately for us, his deepest desire is to share this holiness with us. 

Striving for holiness does not make one superior to others; it has far more to do with maintaining a steady rhythm of “profound contact with God, being a friend of God” (October 6, 2002, L’Osservatore Romana). Through nurturing the divine exchange, it requires our time and commitment to set ourselves apart from the world each day to be with him. God’s deepest desire is to be with each one of us and by doing so he can “set apart” us as holy as he is holy. 

Holy God, Holy Mighty God, Holy Immortal God!
