Bible Study Fellowhip (BSF) added a new study this year so I signed up. It's a verse by verse study of Isaiah and let me tell you ...I'm loving it!
I'm amazed at how relevant God's words spoken through Isaiah are for us today.
In the sixth chapter, Isaiah was given a vision of God seated on the throne. In contrast to God's holiness, He became so aware of his own sinfulness.
His response in Isaiah 6:5 is
"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."
God is holy. Sin cannot come into the presence of His holiness. How grateful I am for Jesus, who made a way for us to enter into a personal relationship with God. His righteousness covers my sin. He paid the penalty for my sin. My response is to bow down and worship Him.
Btw, let me know if you're doing BSF this year. I'd love to know if others are studying Isaiah.
