  Beholding the God of Merciful Holiness (Isaiah 6:1-13)Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian TheologyThe Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KentuckyI.Introduction: What's at Stake in Pursuing a Knowledge of the True God?A.Why We Must Know GodA. W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy , p. 9: “What comes into our minds when we think aboutGod is the most important thing about us.”Tozer’s principle: later on p. 9: “We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mentalimage of God.”Tozer's principle restated:cf. Ps 115:8; 135:18; Hos 9:10David F. Wells, God in the Wasteland  , p. 88: “It is one of the defining marks of Our Time thatGod is now weightless. I do not mean by this that he is ethereal but rather that he has becomeunimportant. He rests upon the world so inconsequentially as not to be noticeable.”B.Scriptural Support Underscoring Our Need to Know GodIsaiah 11:9b: For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the L ORD as the waters cover the sea.Jeremiah 9:23-24: Thus says the L ORD , “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not themighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boastof this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the L ORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the L ORD .Jeremiah 31:31, 34: “Behold, days are coming,” declares the L ORD , “when I will make a newcovenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, . . . And they shall not teach again,each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know the L ORD ,’ for they shall all knowMe, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the L ORD , “for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”Philippians 3:7-10: But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them butrubbish in order that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him, and the power of His resurrectionand the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.C.Knowing God as Transcendent and ImmanentIsaiah 57:15 – For thus says the high and exalted One, who lives forever, whose name is Holy, “Idwell on a high and holy place, and also with the contrite and lowly of spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the spirit of the contrite.”  II.God's Transcendent Majesty (Isa 6:1-5)A.Aspects of God's Majesty, Glory and Holiness (6:1-4)B.Isaiah's Response (6:5)III.God's Immanent Mercy (Isa 6:6-7)A.The Initiator of Mercy – GodB.The Means of Mercy – Purification (personalized!)C.The Goal of Mercy – Restoration and ServiceIV.Isaiah's Call to Ministry (Isa 6:8-13)A.Willing Service Flows out of such Knowledge of God (6:8)B.Perseverance in Difficult Service Flows out of such Knowledge of God (6:9-13)V.Conclusion
