The Whole Earth is Full of His Glory
Are Christians to be spiritualists who shut out the world and await escape, or realists who try to take matters into their own hands? Preaching from Isaiah 6, Pastor Glenn Packiam challenges us to begin by seeing the world not as natural or supernatural, but as sacramental-- created to be a container for the glory of God. The Seraphim's singing, 'The whole earth is full of His glory', challenges the despair of our realism; but Isaiah's confessing, 'Woe is me', challenges the self-righteousness of our spiritualism. We are implicated in the infection of evil in the world. Yet, there is a way for us to become carriers of God's glory in the world.
