A Vision of God in His Temple

The First Week of Pentecost

Isaiah 6:1-8 NRSV

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lofty; and the hem of his robe filled the temple.
Seraphs were in attendance above him; each had six wings: with two they covered their faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew.
And one called to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”
The pivots on the thresholds shook at the voices of those who called, and the house filled with smoke.
And I said: “Woe is me! I am lost, for I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; yet my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”
Then one of the seraphs flew to me, holding a live coal that had been taken from the altar with a pair of tongs.
The seraph touched my mouth with it and said: “Now that this has touched your lips, your guilt has departed and your sin is blotted out.”
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!”

O Lord our God, you are the King, high and exalted. You fill our hearts and are the joy of our praise and adoration.

As your Presence fills your temple, we desire that your Presence will fill our lives, our homes, our churches, our nation, and the world.
“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10 NLT).

As your Glory fills your heavenly dwelling amid the thunderous praise of the host of angels, we desire that this world would be stirred and changed by our praise as we see your Glory that fills the earth.
“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.”

We do not see you as Isaiah saw you, but we feel what Isaiah felt – lost and full of woe. We see our failure and sin in the light of your glorious perfection. As Isaiah was cleansed by fire from your altar, we pray that our lives would be cleansed by the fire of your Holy Spirit, that we will be people whom you can call and send into this world as your Kingdom ambassadors, spreading the “good news” of hope found in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Here we are, send us! Amen.

The Majesty and Glory of Your Name
