Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

Isaiah 6 (ESV)

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!”

And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”....Continue Reading

  1. 1In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3And one called to another and said:
    “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
    the whole earth is full of his glory!”

  2. What an awe inspiring picture of the throne of God, full of His grandeur and glory and angels reflecting all the worship He is due. And Isaiah’s response is the only fitting one: abject humility and confession. Woe is me! And what is God’s response to that? Rub his nose in it? Not at all…guilt taken away and sin atoned for. How undeserving we all are of that. And yet that grace is at the core of God’s interaction with us.

    And Isaiah responds to God’s call much the same that we should: yes I’ll go… And what is he being send to do? To preach to a people who won’t listen, who are hardened to God’s message because they have not obeyed so Isaiah will be used to hardened them more. It is all part of God’s will to give us what we want. If we want Him, we will find Him. If we don’t want Him, He will allow that and even help us along the way away from Him. But all so we get to the end of ourselves quicker and increase the chance of turning to Him.
