Memorize and Reflect

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory. ([bible]Isaiah 6:3[/bible])


Prayer Direction

Ask God to help you see Him in the glory of His holiness and invite the Holy Spirit to convict, inspire, and transform you. Confess to God where you see impurity in your life and ask for a new desire to live a pure and holy life.


“Live It!” Challenge

Lip Examination – Read ([bible]Isaiah 6:1-8[/bible]) and reflect on Isaiah’s staggering response to entering into the holiness of God’s presence (in a vision). Isaiah uses the image of unclean lips (his and the people’s) as a picture of impure and unholy behavior and attitudes. Make a list of at least ten ways our culture has become a place of unclean lips. What are things that are said and done in our world that are seen as acceptable, but they are clearly unholy in the eyes of God. Ask yourself if any of these attitudes or actions have crept into your life and seek to root them out with the help of the Holy Spirit.

  5. Read: Habakkuk 1:13 and 2 Corinthians 5:21
