Isaiah – getting a vision of Christ. It had a humbling effect. He felt his weakness. No person that loves the truth can be offended by the truth. If we compare ourselves by ourselves, we won’t find so much wrong but, if we compare ourselves with Jesus, it will be different.
Chapter 9, God must work in our lives first, then we can work for Him. We are laying up either a treasure for God or against God. The grave takes away the things we have lived for in a natural way. Some say it’s too old to go to Jesus’ Way. The world is progressing, we couldn’t do that. Paul said, “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.” There is no improvement that can be made on God’s Way.
