Thoughts on Isaiah 6- Great Joy and Freedom

For you Isaiah 6

Heard a sermon on Sunday about Chapter 6 of Isaiah.  It was good.  Sitting in the pew on Sunday I needed to hear these words of freedom.

I am going to let the Word speak for itself.

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
    the whole earth is full of his glory.”

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LordAlmighty.”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Wow.  I immediately glommed onto verse 7 where he tells us:

YOUR GUILT IS TAKEN AWAY and YOUR SIN ATONED FOR.

Freedom.

Relief.

Joy.

I had the same response as Isaiah.  Here I am.  Send me!  

I want to tell all the GOOD NEWS! That their guilt is> removed.  Their sin> atoned for.

Oh, the joy. The richness of His mercy.  I love how God tells us our guilt is taken away. I am thinking you might hold onto some of the guilt like I do about your sin, your choices, your attitudes.  But we don’t have to. It is gone, baby. GONE! And my sin?  Paid for.

That my friend, is good news.  That, is your SURSEE for the day, the week- a kajillion years.

Thanks be to God.  What have you been learning and  with whom are you sharing the Good News? Do tell here…

xoxo
