2. Read Isaiah 6:1-7 and Revelation 4:8-11. What parts of these encounters with God on His throne impacts you most? How can these images help you to define what God’s holiness is and is like?

4. Look at Leviticus 19. List the practical advice that we can take away today that would help us to define and display holiness.

5. What area of holiness listed in Leviticus intrigues you most as you think about life around you today and how it would be most helpful?
