In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw The Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were two seraphs, each with six wings: With two 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 door posts 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 Lord Almighty.”
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 sim atoned for.”
Then I heard the voice of The Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who shall go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
We are sinners and are ruined before a holy God. However, we have been atoned for by the sacrifice of the Perfect Lamb. Let’s celebrate that today, friends.
