The following questions relate to the sermon on 28 July 2019, Wholly Holy. The primary passage is Isaiah 6:1-8.

  1. In Isaiah 6:1, King Uzziah is mentioned. (Read 2 Chronicles 26.) Who was King Uzziah according to this passage? Why do you think it is significant that Isaiah had this vision of God once Uzziah died?
  2. Spend some time looking at Isaiah 6:1–4. Discuss how it must have felt for Isaiah to be in this setting.
  3. What does the word “Holy” mean regarding God’s character?
  4. Why did Isaiah have a “woe is me” response to being in God’s presence?
  5. In Isaiah 6:6-7, a live coal from the altar was used to remove Isaiah’s guilt and sin. As Christians, we believe that Jesus removed our guilt and sin with his atoning life, crucifixion, death, and resurrection. Discuss how this live coal and Jesus are connected.
  6. Do you believe that God has and is making you holy through Jesus? Why or why not?
  7. Read 1 Peter 1:13-16. This passage says that we are called to be holy as God is holy. Do you see your life as reflecting God’s holiness to others? Why or why not?
  8. At the end of the day, God is the one who makes us holy (set apart by His goodness.) End this lesson spending some time reflecting on this truth and praying for one another to reflect God’s holiness to the world.
