His glory fills the whole earth.
I had a little break in between patients this morning and so was able to do some studying. I ended up focusing on Isaiah 6. One of my favorite Old Testament passages. Personal and corporate worship. An encounter with a holy God and how by definition that must change us. A reminder of who owns our souls.
This passage also points to the ultimate need for Christ as mediator. The seraphim can't look at God for his wonderfully, awefully, divine holiness. It is so incredible to me how Jesus is woven all through the fabric of the Old Testament.
In other news:
This is not necessarily surprising. You would have thought that my participating in the Miss Mississippi pageant (yes, I admit it) those many years ago would have made me more graceful. But nope. One of my "second mamas" as I like to call them, when I was younger, used to teasingly refer to me as "Grace". It was not without sarcasm I'm afraid!
