Because of what Jesus did for us, every Sunday at every Divine service we replay Isaiah’s encounter with the Lord Almighty. The first thing we do in worship is to confess our sins. We are essentially saying the same thing that Isaiah said. “Woe to me. I am ruined. For I am a man of unclean lips and I live among a people of unclean lips.”

We may not be the apostles. Our call may not be the same as theirs. But we, like them, face a world that is hostile to the Lord we confess and proclaim. We face a world that increasingly wants to shut us out and shut us down. They have no interest in hearing the witness of the holy and righteous God who died for sinners like them.

“This is the story about how God can take a little kid without any respect and how he can be saved. It is only by God’s grace.”

Life is such that it often feels as though the ascension of Jesus equals the absence of Jesus. We may feel that we have to stand staring into the sky waiting for Him to come back again. Our enemies still hound us from every corner. Our sinful natures lead us to hurt others. The fallen world pummels us with illnesses, natural disasters, betrayals, and more. The devil accuses us, whispering in our ears that we are never going to be good enough for a holy and righteous God, asking us if God really loves us and our dirty selves THAT MUCH.
