A Call to Die

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Who shall I send?  And who will go for us?’  And I said, ‘Here am I.  Send me!’  He said, ‘Go and tell this people…’  Isaiah 6:8-9

“God’s questions were not only for Isaiah.  His call is for everybody who will listen and respond.  The prophet heard and instantly responded, so God sent him to tell everybody who would listen about the greatness and healing power of God.  Isaiah was eager to respond because all of his excuses had been burned away by that hot coal.  When our sins are exposed in the light of God’s presence, we feel ruined; but when we experience forgiveness in the depths of our souls, we become fresh, clean and new.  We are eager to please God in any way we can.  When He calls, we hear and go.”
