Re:Verse reading–Luke 5:1-11 (day two). But when Simon Peter saw that, he fell down at Jesus’ feet, saying, “Go away from me Lord, for I am a sinful man!” vs. 8
Then I said, “Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” Isaiah 6:5
Most of my career was spent in the performing arts world. Generally teaching others to love and foster the art of singing. As such artists are always listening to other artists, attending concerts, and finding new ways to perfect their craft. I have often found myself saying after hearing another group or singer “I have no business in this business!”
When you encounter greatness there is an instant humility in your own life. You are instantly aware of your short-comings and weaknesses. Isaiah and Peter experienced this at the most profound level. A simple word from God and they saw their sin. We shouldn’t be afraid to confront the almighty just because he will expose our inadequacies. We should run to him so that he may fill those places with his sufficiency.
