Isiah 6:1-8| Saved to serve

Isiah 6Another Glimpse of Heaven

As we would see in the prophet Isiah’s vision which again gives us a glimpse of Heaven and the worship given by the heavenly beings to the Lord who is seated on the throne.

God revealed Himself to the prophet in a vision that prompted him of his personal sinfulness, and revealed to him the truth that by ourselves we are totally unworthy of God and His fellowship if not for Christ.


In the same manner as that of the seraphs that cleansed Isiah’s mouth with coal, Christ too in His act of love on the Cross has also cleansed us from our unrighteousness, a cleansing which we receive by God’s grace in Jesus, whom we can receive in our hearts by faith in Him.

Isiah’s response

As worshipers it is equally important that we look at Isiah’s vision in light of what God has done to us when He confronted us with His holiness through the Scripture but also at the same time also called us into His fellowship through the Gospel.

Looking back at God’s work of saving us and cleansing us of our sins in we should respond in the same manner to that of Isiah when the Lord said: “whom shall I send?” (Isiah 6:8a)

Isiah said: “Here am I send me…” (Isiah 6:8b).

Everything in our Christian life and service flows from our relationship with God. If we are not in vital fellowship with Him, everything else will be out of focus.1

Reflections:

  1. Have I ever responded to God’s love by making myself available to His service?

  2. If ever you are already in service of God in the church do we ever take time to look at our service as a privilege that God has given us or do we tend to look at it more as job that needs to be done because that’s what’s expected of us?

  3. Have you ever experienced how it is to beset free from sin, that you might serve Jesus Christ?


Our response

Save me from bloodguilt, O God,

the God who saves me,

and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.”

Psalm 51:14
