What’s a Commissioning Look Like?

Isaiah 6:1-8

Introduction

- If you are taking notes, please write: How? Why? What?

- We are going to break Isaiah 6 up into two sections; part 2 will be this evening

- Over the past few weeks we have seen Isaiah, a prophet, crying out to the land

- He has showed us the importance of obeying God, in all things

- Today, we see His commissioning and it is something that we receive also

- The Great Commission is more than a popular verse; it’s believer’s obedience

- Matt 28:19-20, “Therefore GO and MAKE disciples of ALL nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and TEACHING them to OBEY everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

- APP: It is the measuring stick for us to determine our faithfulness to Christ … The secret to serving God involves ONE thing: Your Faithfulness

- HE IS FAITHFUL … it is up to us to be faithful to Him

- Let’s look at how one man received his calling, and what we can learn from it

- Stand and read Isaiah 6:1-8 / Pray

Point 1 - Seraphs in Heaven (v1-3)

- There are lots of things to see here for us as he records it … let’s unpack together

- Isaiah has received a glimpse of the majesty of God

- It is at this time when he sees who he is called to serve … imagine the experience

-- It is important to note (I believe) that not everything about Heaven is revealed

- Those which are in Christ will see wonderful sights (sights untold) …

- Angels fly constantly around the throne proclaiming God’s holiness

- These angels though, are special – they are created with one purpose: To Praise

- Note: In no other place in God’s word do we see these seraphs mentioned

- These angels are pure, holy, without blemish – they radiate God’s light

-- In a sense, they are the caretakers of God’s throne and His attendants (humans are not called to worship the angels -- ever)

- These angels praise, constantly, and it is going on right now!!

- The sound of their voices shakes the doorposts (consider force of an earthquake)

- Psalm 99:1 says, “The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake”

- They also radiate God’s cleansing fire and purity – they RECOGNIZE sin

- God’s fire is discussed in 1 Corinthians 3:13, “… his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work.”

- They see Isaiah for who he is and realize he cannot be in this place as he is

- Even these Seraphs know that Isaiah must be cleansed to be in God’s presence

- When we enter God’s presence, we too MUST be changed

Point 2 - A righteous cleansing (v5-7)

- Re-read verse 5 … emphasis on realization of who he is in the presence of God

- Ruined: Destroyed, undeserving, done for, doomed to extinction … finished
