Here I am. Send me. (Isaiah 6:8)
God had a message and chose to send it through a human agent: “whom shall I send?” Isaiah responded to God’s request with a resounding, “Send me!”
There is much to be gleaned from Isaiah’s encounter with God and the circumstances surrounding these words, but let’s focus on the following. The Father in heaven through his love and mercy extended a way of forgiveness for all of humanity. He gave grace though Jesus Christ. Receive him and receive life.
The full extent of God’s offer exceeds imagination. Jesus said the harvest is plentiful, yet the workers are few to share his Good News. The cure for the diseased heart of humanity is readily and abundantly available for disbursement. but where are those to will deliver the message? Jesus appeals, “Pray for them” to step forward.
Each of us who have said yes to Christ and his grace are enlisted as his agents, whether pastor, factory worker, student, corporate president, retail clerk, athlete, and so on. God produced the way to experience abundant life, and we are God’s delivery system. We are his strategy plan for presentation, his voice.
You have showered me with grace in abundance, so shall I go and tell others. Here I am. Send me. Amen.
“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. “
