“Here am I. Send me!”

Forgot to post this yesterday, so enjoy 2 posts today if you follow me. 🙂

Such a simple phrase, but it packs a punch. Isaiah 6:8 says “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

I don’t know about you but unless I’m fairly certain of the outcome or in control I rarely jump the gun to go first. God tells us we should go forth into ALL nations for him. Literally, it does mean into other nations but I also think it means you should branch out at home too. I know personally there are times when I’d rather not “fight” for God. Then, I remember he fought for me at calvary and died so I could be blemish free in front of the Lord one day. Funny thing is, he DID go into all nations. So he’s asking us to do something he ALREADY did. So, next time you feel a little uneasy about posting that bible verse to your facebook page or praying in public because someone may get offended…remember God was offended with you until Jesus stepped in. This past year has really taught me a lot about my faith and the biggest lesson is to not care what anyone else thinks unless they are the man upstairs. These days people are offended by everything, and if what I do offends you and I’m at peace with it, then so be it. Be offended. Maybe my offense will be the push someone needs. I’ve got a daughter to set an example for. So unless you’re her or Jesus, your offense levels don’t bother me.
