Thoughts: When Isaiah went to the temple one day, he became part of a dramatic service. God was there, sitting on an elevated throne.
Above God were six seraphim, each one with six wings. (This is the only time in the Bible where seraphim are mentioned.)
The seraphim sang this chorus: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.”
The temple shook and filled with smoke.
Isaiah felt guilty and lamented, “I am a man of unclean lips. Yet now I have seen the Lord!”
A seraphim flew to Isaiah, holding a live coal which he placed upon Isaiah’s mouth, saying, “Your sin is purged.
God asked, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
And Isaiah answered, “Here am I; send me.”
Discussion: Where do we not want to go?
Activity: “Keep thou … our lips from shame, that in thy house have called upon they name.”
