Accident or abomination?
When Isaiah saw the Lord, he was painfully aware of his own sin. "Woe to me!" he 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." (Isaiah 6:5)
When we see the brilliance of God's glory, we see more clearly the darkness of our own sin.
We saw it was an accident, but God says it was an abomination.
We saw it was a blooper, but God says it was a blunder.
We say it was a case of confusion, but God says it was corruption.
We say it was a deficiency, but God says it was depravity.
We say it was an error, but God says it was evil.
Help me, Lord, to see sin as You see it.
