RE Verse reading–Isaiah 6 (day seven) “I saw the Lord. . .and I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’ ” (vs 1, 8) Isaiah is different than we are. Different historical moment. Different gifts. Like every person, He is (was) an uncopied creation of an infinitely creative God. No one is exactly like him. (No one is like you either) In another way, however, Isaiah is very much like us. He gets afraid. He needs reassurance when things get uncertain. As we prepare for worship today, will reflect on Isaiah’s experience as a template for God’s work in your own life? ” I saw the Lord.” “I cried, ‘I am ruined.’ ” I said, ‘Here am I. Send me.’ ” I said, ‘ How long, O Lord?’ ” There is great benefit in the stories of the saints gone before. What does an encounter with a Holy God look like? Isaiah’s story provides us with answers and inspiration. May God give us grace for the journey!
