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...

When we put the bread and wine to our lips during the Lord's Supper, God tells us that our "guilt has been taken away" and our "sin has been atoned for." The Holy One, in his grace, did what we could never do: he provided the perfect Sacrifice for our sin with his own Son. Our holiness, our righteousness, and our perfection are not won through our efforts on earth, but by the one who came from heaven's altar and gave his life so that we might be the righteousness of God (see 2 Cor. 5:21).

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.
