That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life...
Philippians 2:15-16a

Sunday Scripture

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
Exodus 3:5
First mention of the word "holy" Scripture.

And if any man shall take away of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Revelation 22:19
Last mention of the word "holy" in Scripture.

Both these verses contain warnings.  The context of these verses vividly portrays the seriousness, awesomeness, and fearfulness of that which is holy!  

The word "holy" appears 546 times in the Bible.  "Holiness" is in the Scripture 42 times. 
God is holy.
Christians are to be holy too!
I Peter 1:16
