Something becomes clear about us when in the very presence of Holy God.
Then I said, “It’s all over! I am doomed, for I am a sinful man. I have filthy lips, and I live among a people with filthy lips. Yet I have seen the King, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” ~ Isaiah [isaiah 6:5]
I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; 6 therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” ~ Job [Job 42:5-6]
And he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God. ~ Moses [Exodus 3:6]
Then the men of Beth-shemesh said, “Who is able to stand before the LORD, this holy God? And to whom shall he go up away from us?” [1 Samuel 6:20]
But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” ~ Peter [Luke 5:8]
It’s healthy to take an honest look at ourselves, and realize just how much we need Jesus every day. Without Jesus, we have no chance.
