Isaiah 6:1-5(NKJV)

1In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. 2Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3And one cried to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”

Isaiah 6:1-5(NKJV)

4And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.

5So I said:

“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 my eyes have seen the King,
The Lord of hosts.”

i surrender my denial1
I Surrender My Denial
  • Our theme for 2013 has been “I Surrender All”
  • We have already focused on some specific lessons that deal with our theme
  • This morning, we want to do the same as we continue with our theme
i surrender my denial2
I Surrender My Denial
  • When we talk about denial, there are different meanings to the idea
  • One is very Biblical in nature; it’s the denial Jesus spoke of in Matthew 16:24
  • We are to deny ourselves of anything that might prohibit us from following after Christ
i surrender my denial3
I Surrender My Denial
  • The denial that we are going to speak of today deals with a different type of self denial
  • It’s perhaps more of a blindness or ignorance when it comes to our own lives
  • It’s the idea of focusing on the bad in others instead of in ourselves
i surrender my denial4
I Surrender My Denial
  • It’s easy to look at others and point out what is wrong or what needs to be fixed/improved
  • It’s not quite as easy to see the same in ourselves
  • Perhaps because of this we just choose not to focus on ourselves
comparisons comparisons
Comparisons, Comparisons
  • We are all guilty of playing the comparison game
  • We do it with our spiritual and moral lives
  • We generally compare ourselves to someone much worse and think, “I’m not that bad”
comparisons comparisons1
Comparisons, Comparisons
  • Instead of being the best we can be, we just end up being better than the next guy
  • The standard for many is no longer Jesus, but the least of those around us
  • No doubt, others around us are bad (Israel - Is. 5).
face to face with god
Face To Face With God
  • What happens though, when we come face to face with God?
  • Look at what happen to Isaiah (6:1-5)
  • “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 my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts”
face to face with god1
Face To Face With God
  • Isaiah was forced to see himself in comparison to who God was
  • He had no choice but to see himself as the sinner that he was
  • If we are going to compare ourselves, then we should do so looking to God, the greatest standard
face to face with god2
Face To Face With God
  • This is precisely what should happen to us when we come face to face with God
  • It doesn’t have to happen in a physical sense, but can happen through the word
  • Do we too recognize our own sinfulness before God in humbleness of heart?
what about others
What About Others?
  • Perhaps we are still tempted to say, “But what about others?”
  • So let’s look at others who were willing to look at God and be honest about themselves
  • David came face to face with God through His creation – Psalm 8
what about others1
What About Others?
  • Peter came face to face with God in the flesh – Luke 5:8
  • Paul came face to face with God through his conversion – I Corinthians 15:9; Ephesians 3:8; I Timothy 1:15
  • Paul even refers to himself as the chief of sinners
so what now
So What Now?
  • What do I do when I come face to face with God and the reality that I am a sinner?
  • Do I just quit or give up because “woe is me”?
  • What did Isaiah do following his own realization?
so what now1
So What Now?
  • v. 7 – “Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged”
  • The first thing we notice is that there was atonement for Isaiah and his “unclean lips”
  • Because of Christ we enjoy the same (Jn. 3:16; Rom. 5:6-11)
so what now2
So What Now?
  • We don’t have to give up, Christ made a way for us to be cleansed and free from sin!
  • This should cause us to rejoice, but never feel as though we were good enough to deserve what He did for us
  • It’s okay to admit who we are
so what now3
So What Now?
  • Look at what else Isaiah did…
  • v. 8 – “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me.’”
  • Following Isaiah’s realization and atonement, he began to work
so what now4
So What Now?
  • Isaiah gives us the perfect response to God’s holiness
  • We should always be willing to look at ourselves in comparison to God
  • We can gain forgiveness through Christ, and then get busy doing the will of God!
