Who is Looking?

Isaiah 66:2  Is one of those passages that makes my head explode.  Think of it.  The one who created the universe will look to us if we are:
  • Humble
  • Contrite of Spirit
  • Tremble at His Word
Do you ever despair of God hearing you when you look at the qualifications?  Thoughts at DTTB.
I wrote about this passage on the 4th last year.  I saw something different this time through,  I began to take inventory of my life in those three areas.  I asked the Lord how I was doing in them.  It then occurred to me that this is not graded on a scale.  It does not say:
  • Humble on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being really, really humble.
  • Contrite on that same scale 
  • Ditto Tremble…
It is not qualified.  Just humble, contrite, and trembling.  Neither does it seem to indicate that 1 or 2 is sufficient.  It is all three or not.

It then dawns on me that there is no earthly way God is going to be looking to me.  Then I remember that He sees me through the blood of one who not only was all three but was perfect in all three and imputed that perfection to me.

Grace is a good thing,
