God Calls Isaiah

Key Verse:

“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker”
Psalm 95:6

Our hope is for kids to know that: God is Holy

(Open the bible and read to your child Isaiah 6:1-8) Being a prophet was a pretty tough job for many, and for Isaiah it was very tough. He had the task of telling Israel that God was angry with them. In this week’s passage we read the description of Isaiah’s experience worshipping God. Isaiah saw God’s holiness, and Seraphs which are a type of angel hovering above. He felt the temple shake and fill with smoke as the sound of Holy, Holy, Holy was heard throughout the place. The amazing part of Isaiah’s experience was God’s grace was evident. As a seraph flew to him, he was told “your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for”. What a great and holy God we worship, who forgives us of our sins and loves us unconditionally.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Tell about a person you greatly respect and why. How do you respond to the qualities you admire? For example, you might aim to be more like that person or spend time learning from him or her. We can do similar things to worship God because we respect him. Talk with your kids about ways your family can worship God this week.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
As a family, think about ways to show that God is holy, which means “set apart,” “sacred,” or “pure.” Have family members find an object in the home that communicates set apart, sacred, or pure. For example, someone can find soap that is “100% pure.” Or, a piece of china used only for special family dinners. When everyone’s found an object, talk about the following:

• How does the object communicate set apart, sacred or pure?

• What does it mean for God to be set apart, sacred or pure?

• What are ways that we can live out God’s holiness as a family?
