Heaven and Earth are Filled With His Glory

Isa 6.1 In the year that king Uzziah died 
saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, 
high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Everything as it ought to be and will be...

*God exalted (ensconced in power,         

  glorified, emmanent)

*Heaven singing (God is the lyric)

*Earth ringing

*Angels serving

*Man worshiping (humbled, repentant, 

 cleansed and forgiven, volunteering)

Somebody Died For You

One died for you who never knew you.
One died for you Who knew all about you.

One left home and comfort to suffer deprivation and discomfort and do battle.
One left home to comfort those who suffer and give rest to the battle weary.

One was all about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
One was all about eternal life, soul liberty and the pursuit of God's glory.

One enlisted to see the world.
One saw the world and gave Himself for it.

One lies in a grave resting from his country's victory and awaits resurrection and glory.
One gloriously resurrected and gives victory over the grave to all who believe in Him.

One is honored and loved for his service and ultimate sacrifice.
One is honored and served and honors those who sacrificially love others.

Yes, somebody died for you. The best thing we can do is remember them, honor them and live so their death is not in vain.
