Dust is Visible in the Light

 

(Isaiah 6:5) “‘How terrible it will be for me!’ I cried, ‘because I am ruined! I’m a man with unclean lips, and I live among a people with unclean lips! And my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of the Heavenly Armies!’”

(John 3:19) “And this is the basis for judgment: The light has come into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light because their actions were evil.”

(Hebrews 4:12) “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow, as it judges the thoughts and purposes of the heart.”

Everyone is good in their own eyes or compared to others. Whenever I ask people in the streets if God will allow them to enter heaven, they always answer, “Yes! I have not killed anyone”. They assume that God will judge them according to the laws of man and that the ultimate crime is that of murder. However, what they ignore is that God will judge us by HIS Law, and the Word of God is what will stand accusing us. Apostle Paul said that it was thanks to the Law that He knew that coveting was against God’s will.

When you encounter Jesus and let His light shine upon you, you will truly see how far you are from being a good person, or from having what it takes to enter heaven. The best way to do this is to read the Bible which speaks clearly to our hearts. When we stand naked before Him, with no more hidden lies, fears, or pride, we see ourselves as we truly are. We realize that we are sinners destined to an eternity separated from God. The more we read the Word, the more we will realize how much we need God to change us and save us from our fallen nature. However, if we allow Jesus into our hearts, He will cleanse all our sins and strengthen us to live a holy and acceptable life for God.

(“There were some things about himself Isaiah didn’t know – until he got into God’s presence. One moment in the presence of God can lead to a place of repentance and renewal that you’ll never find on your own. Repentance is God’s gift to the struggling heart. Without it, you’ll never change. In God’s presence, ”– Bob Gass.)

 

Isaiah got convicted of the things that never bothered him before… his words. How about you? Angry words, bitter words, judgmental words, careless words, are these part of your vocabulary?
