What does the Bible say?

God is Holy.  He is like no other!

1Samuel 2:2  
There is none holy like the Lord: for there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.
Exodus 15:11 Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?  
Isaiah 6:3 And they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory."
Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name [is] Holy; I dwell in the high and holy [place], with him also [that is] of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
Psalms 145:17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works
Psalms 99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy. 
Psalms 30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.  

Personally.....

Since we have given our lives to Christ, we are Holy in God’s sight; not from anything we have done or will do in the future, but because He took upon Himself the penalty we deserved for our sins.  Here are some additional scriptures in regards to our call to holiness.

Hebrews 12:14 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. 
Romans 12:1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
1 Peter 1:15-16 But as he which has called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
