Isaiah 6:3 – And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”

In the Hebrew language, intensity is communicated by repetition. To say three times that the LORD is holy, holy, holy is to declare His holiness in the highest possible degree. I really like that thought. In calling to one another, the seraphs (vs. 2) were proclaiming that the Lord Almighty is holy. This verse illustrates for us the holiness and glory of God. He is high and lifted up, and if we would consistently see Him in that exalted position, we would always come to Him in true humility and great gratitude. You never come into the presence of the Father because of who you are. You come into His presence because of the fact that you are in Christ. The Lord Jesus made that very clear when He said, “No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6). If you are His child, you can come with boldness to the throne of grace. We who are here on the earth must follow the pattern of these heavenly beings from above. There is no attribute so essential to God as genuine worship. It is for His holiness, more than for anything else, that His creatures worship Him.

Challenge:

These heavenly worshipers cried out to one another continually and proclaimed the holiness of God. As followers of Jesus Christ, we must never stop worshiping Him. No matter what may be happening in your life, there is always a good reason to worship the Lord. He is so faithful to be with you always and He will never leave your side. He is so good that He always wants the best for you each day. He has promised you so much already, that even if He stopped blessing you today, His existing promises to you would be more that enough to sustain you. Your challenge for this week is to worship the Lord throughout your day. For instance, when He answers one of your prayer requests, give Him praise right when the answer comes to you. When He shows you grace and carries you through a difficult situation unharmed, give Him glory immediately! When He provides for you and meets a need that you know only He could have met, worship Him as your sole provider. Learn to be a worshiper even when you are outside of a church service. Worship Him in your car on the way to work. Worship Him at home as you work around the house.
