The prophet Isaiah's life was forever changed through his vision of the holy God. In this God-focused moment, Isaiah also saw the sinfulness of his own life in a startling new way. It was a moment that would constrain and impel Isaiah all the days of his life.
Like Isaiah, we need a fresh view of God. We need to see God as He truly is-absolutely holy. We need to see our sin as God sees it. And we need to realize that while God demands holiness, He cleanses and uses imperfect people. When we come into the presence of Almighty God, and we catch a glimpse of Him as He really is, we are driven to worship him in his absolute holiness.
Is it still possible to encounter the living God today? Although we are prone to think of important people as unapproachable, the God of the universe not only has made it possible for us to know Him, but it is His deep desire that we do so.
