Isaiah 64:1-9 is a plea for God to rend the heavens and come down to do awesome things we did not look for. It is also a confession of sin. We are unclean, our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment, and we are fading like a dead leaf. We have been in our sins a long time, and Isaiah asks, "Shall we be saved?" The Gospel is God's answer to Isaiah's plea. In Christ, God has opened the heavens and come down and done awesome things we did not look for. Christ cleanses us from our sin, clothes us in his righteousness, and gives us eternal life.
