This week's encouragement

In the year of King Uzziah’s death, I saw Adonai sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the Temple. Seraphim were standing above Him. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. One called out to another, and said: “Holy, holy, holy, is Adonai-Tzva’ot! The whole earth is full of His glory.” Then the posts of the door trembled at the voice of those who called, and the House was filled with smoke.

Then I said: “Oy to me! For I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I am dwelling among a people of unclean lips. For my eyes have seen the King, Adonai-Tzva’ot!” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, with a glowing coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. He touched my mouth with it and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips. Your iniquity is taken away, and your sins atoned for.” Then I heard the voice of Adonai saying: “Whom should I send, and who will go for Us?” So I said, “Hineni. Send me.” - Isaiah 6:1-8

This familiar passage is in the Haftarah portion this week. I encourage you to read it again, slowly, allowing the Ruach to open your heart to the vast holiness of the G-d we worship. May we see His throne with new eyes so that we can know how much we need Him and how much He has given through Messiah Yeshua. Let us pray for the equal measure of humility to submit and boldness to say "Hineni, here I am. Send me."
