Edifier du Jour-Isiah 6:1-7(NASB)
1 In the year of King Uzziah's death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called out to another and said, "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory." 4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke. 5 Then I said, "Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts." 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. 7 He touched my mouth with it and said, "Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven."
God doesn't wash out our mouths with soap, he burns things off with that burning coal. It will burn off anything that is impure and leave behind what is solid and everlasting. Some of us are more impure than others, but all of us have unclean lips before God gets to work on them. Yes, we can do the "we're not worthy" routine with a real reverence rather than a Wayne's World cliche of reverence. However, God makes us worthy in a hurry through the blood of Jesus.
