I Am Ruined

Isaiah 6:5-8

5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.” 6 Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

  1. We were listening to a sermon about that over the weekend.

  2. What sermon was it? Our Pastor @hillsongnyc read this scripture on Sunday too. Theres this song by Desperation Band, I think its called I Will Go, and in the beginning this scripture is read, and it always moves me. The idea that we are forever ruined and changed, and we can’t go back to the way we were before even if we wanted to…well, that speaks for itself I think.
