Let’s Point it Back

“Doom! It’s Doomsday! I’m as good as dead! Every word I’ve ever spoken is tainted blasphemous even! And the people I live with talk the same way, using words that corrupt and desecrate. And here I’ve looked God in the face! The King! GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies!”

(Isaiah 6:5 MSG)

We can spend our entire lives pointing the finger at other people, but I believe that there eventually comes a time when that finger is pointed back at us. Such was the case of the prophet Isaiah. This messenger of God was eventually confronted with his own sin while in the mighty presence of God. In His presence everything is exposed – our self-righteousness, pride, guilt. If God’s prophet, His agent, could utter the above sentiments, what would we say if we were in His presence? So before we point the finger at others, let’s remember to point it back at ourselves.

Beholding God’s holiness leaves us with a sense of our own unworthiness.
