Minute with Mike / January 2019
And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts! Isaiah 6:5
Henry Blackaby pointed out that Isaiah was aware of his sin because the stark difference between his behavior and King Jesus’ example. Look back at the verse… Isaiah confesses his woe, his lostness, his personal uncleanness, and the uncleanness of his surroundings…

The best way to recognize counterfeit currency is to handle the real thing frequently. Let’s immerse ourselves in God’s Truth fully, pursuing true manhood in Christ rather than being fooled by the distractions of our culture.
