"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Isaiah 6:1-13
In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!”

How do you feel in the presence of God? A bit unsure of what to say? Super excited like you're spending time with your best friend? Shameful and scared because you don't feel you measure up? Throughout the centuries as the saints and sinners of God have been in his presence, one things is sure, it is a dreadfully wonderful thing. Isaiah is no different. He feels like he's going to die and he says, "Woe is me, for I'm a man of unclean lips and I live among a people of unclean lips." To be in the presence of a Holy God is no joke, and yet, God in his mercy, transforms his life in this moment and Isaiah is never the same. We have a chance to be equally transformed by this same Holy God.  Join us as we gather to be reminded of the calling he has placed on our lives to live counter-culturally for the glory of God and for the sharing of the Gospel message, that Christ is King and Caesar is not.
