The Prayer of the LORD: First and foremost, God is holy and we are not. People who are not holy do not appreciate a standard that reveals their unrighteousness
The Prayer of the LORD: But God’s perfect holiness and our sinfulness combine to create a breach we cannot close. It can be closed only by the mediating work of the Savior, who offers forgiveness for our sin.
The Prayer of the LORD: Second, God is omniscient. Because God sees and knows all, we cannot hide from Him.
The Prayer of the LORD: We can hide from the gaze of humans in our private sin, but there is no way to avoid the gaze of God
