Today's Verse: Isaiah 6:6-7

Monday, July 9, 2007

Then one of the seraphs 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."
— Isaiah 6:6-7

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Isaiah's experience of God's presence brought him sacred cleansing necessary for his life of service to Israel. Similarly, when we put the bread and wine to our lips during the Lord's Supper, God reminds us that our "guilt has been taken away" and our "sin has been atoned for" by the sacrifice of Jesus and the cleansing power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus did for us what we could never do: he provided the perfect sacrifice for our sins, and the Holy Spirit purified us and came to live in us (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). Our holiness, righteousness, and perfection are not won through our efforts on earth but by the Son who came from heaven's glory and gave his life so that we might be the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11).

My Prayer...

O precious and loving Father, thank you for your perfect sacrifice for my sins. Please use me to help others know of your incredible gift that allows them to stand before you holy and without any stain of sin. To you be all glory, honor, thanks, and praise in the name of Jesus, my Savior, and Lord. Amen.
