Wednesday Lenten Worship – March 2, 2022

0  comments

The Chosen is a television series that has brought hope and comfort to millions. It depicts the early days of Jesus’ ministry in a reverent, approachable way. And yet, it is more than entertainment. In a visual age, The Chosen shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a refreshing way that challenges our understanding of the gospels. This Lenten season, we will be working through the first season of The Chosen, digging into its episodes and the Scripture behind them in search of God’s grace and love so that we might reflect on what it truly means to be chosen.

March 2, 2022 – You Are Called, Isaiah 6:1-8; Episode 1

Are you worthy to be chosen by God? Oftentimes, it may not feel like it, and, if you’re really honest with yourself, the answer will always be a resounding, “No!” As fallen human beings, lost in sin, none are worthy of being chosen. Episode one of The Chosen introduces us to a cast of lost souls, none of whom feel worthy. And yet, God chooses to call the sinful, the imperfect, and the unclean to be His own and to proclaim His Word, as Isaiah’s vivid call makes plain to us. In this same way, God has called you to be chosen, a call which we should all answer, “Here I am, Lord! Send me!”

Isaiah 6:1-8 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train[a] of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!”[b]

4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 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!”

6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”

8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”

About the speaker

David Langewisch

First and foremost you need to know I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I believe my life is fully in him. I feel good about my training to be a pastor. However, my heart's desire is to simply be a servant of Christ, used by him to help people experience fullness of life in him. Sometimes I think I’m smart. Sometimes I think I’m funny. But I count all of this as a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ and being found in him. My favorite book of the Bible is Romans, and if you have to pin me down, my favorite chapter is Romans 8. Personally, I think this matters more than knowing I’m from Minnesota, or that I was graduated from Lutheran schools starting with elementary school. Curiosity might lead you to ask about my wonderful wife, Lynn, and four children, but I would probably exaggerate about their greatness and how helpful would that be? If you really want to know other positions I’ve held, honors I’ve received, etc., you can ask and I will try to remember. But when you walk away from our conversation, this is what I want you to remember about me – I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus and I believe my life is fully in him. And if, in my contact with you, some of this rubs off on you, and you share the same perspective with greater conviction, I will count it a blessing.
