“Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?”
This is how God’s call to Isaiah started in Isaiah chapter 6. Isaiah was a man who was extremely loyal to God. Today, God doesn’t verbally call us out like He did in Isaiah 6:8. Instead, He calls us through His Word. You could say that our Bible is like a cell phone. God uses His Word to speak to us. He calls out to us through His Word, and we respond to it. Isaiah’s response to God’s call was, “Here am I! Send me.”
We should have this reaction to God’s call. After all, we NEVER want our cell phone connection to disconnect. Likewise, we do not want to disconnect from God. Sometimes we may feel like we aren’t “good enough”. God just wants faithful Christians that are willing to serve Him and obey His will throughout their lives.
After Isaiah answered God’s call, Isaiah continued to serve God with all his heart and soul. He lived a wonderful, faithful life for God and even prophesied many things about Jesus that would not be known until about 500 years later! Remember, this is the same God who took David, a young shepherd boy, and made him a mighty king. Jesus also chose four fishermen to change the world, and He will use us too! So while God is standing there calling you, will you pick up His Word and answer Him? Or will you disconnect from God?
