Today's Verse: Isaiah 6:2-3 (KJV)

Saturday, July 7, 2007

Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
— Isaiah 6:2-3 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus taught us that worship is not about a place but about our Father (John 4:21-24). Knowing that the heavenly hosts worship our Father should inspire, humble, and motivate us to do the same, no matter where we find ourselves. Above all other qualities, God is holy. The heavenly beings acknowledge his holiness three times: "Holy, holy, holy...!" Why? Because God is unique, undefiled, pure, perfect, and unparalleled. Nothing in our everyday and mundane world measures up to the Lord Almighty. His glory fills the earth and sky. He is more significant than all we can imagine. He is worthy of our worship, reverence, and awe.

My Prayer...

Holy God, Holy Father, Holy King of the ages, I praise you for the beautiful gift of your grace. I know that compared to your glory, I am not worthy to be in your presence. But you have made me worthy — "holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation" (Colossians 1:22) — by the sacrificial blood of Jesus, the Lamb slain for my sins. Thank you for this incredible gift so I may worship you as I should and long to do! In Jesus' name, I praise you. Amen.
