The teenagers push forward to see those singers or athletes whom they consider great. Autograph seekers make their best effort to gather signatures of human greatness all the time.
It’s common to hear the expression among Christians, often in jest “when I get to heaven I’m going to go up to God and ask….” Isaiah has such an opportunity in Isaiah 6. And his only possible response is, “I am ruined.” For I am a man of unclean lips, He isn’t talking about having a foul mouth. Rather this is his admitting that he is sinful
God should have struck Isaiah dead. But the seraphim took a coal from the place where offerings were burned in the temple, and touched to Isaiah's lips, saying "Your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for." And so is yours, by the blood of Jesus.
