Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts

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!”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”
(Isaiah 6:3-8 ESV)

The image of Isaiah’s vision of the LORD and his response brings chills every time I read it.   How often I need the reminder that He is a holy and perfect LORD and has sent the Son to allow my sins to be forgiven.  This needs to be drilled into my fleshly body each day, and by the power of the Spirit I will respond.  Let us as Christians remember our “guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for,” and be moved to say “Here I am, Send Me!”

One of my favorite books that I consider most impactful on my life is The Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul.   Please check it out, or the teaching video series here.
