Thankful Thursday! July 18, 2019

Thank you, Lord, for: 

Peaceful (and cool) day at the beach with Hona!  

Whitty offered to change Fiona’s tire. 

Pres and Whitt spent the day together yesterday.  I love that!

Peaceful Sundays with Gil, Pres, Whitt, church, family lunch,…

 ““In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory” (Isa. 6: 1–3).

We might draw near to God with awe. Even the holy seraphim covered their faces and their feet in His presence. They have four wings for worship, but two for service.

(2) “Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar” (Isa. 6: 5–6).

The pure light of God’s holiness reveals the blackness of our sin.  Compare Job 42: 5–6: “I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

If any man thinks well of himself, he has never met God. Nothing will demolish self-righteousness like one real sight of God.

The wonderfulness of God’s love! It would be no wonder if an unholy God could love unholy men; but that the God whose name is Holy, the Infinitely Holy God, could love beings so utterly sinful as we are, is the wonder of the eternities. There are many deep mysteries in the Bible, but no other as profound as this.”
