Texts: Isaiah 6:1-8 [9-13]; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11
If you listen to the Bible, I mean really listen, you realize that pretty much no one is ever prepared for, or worthy of, God. No one in our cast of bible characters today is ready, that’s for sure. Pretty much every time the Holy One shows up people suddenly remember how desperately unready they are for an up close and personal visit.
