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!”
(Isaiah 6:8 (NIV))
Are you the type of person who always raised your hand in class? Were you eager to jump in and get things done when no one else would even lift a finger, or were you like the group of people who would help once someone got things started?
Each of us have certain gifts that we excel at and these are usually what we are willing to step out and do when the need arises, but most of us will not step out of our comfort zone. We will not step out into the unknown without being prodded and continuously asked to do so. Human nature loves comfort even if that comfort has us living in sin. We fail to move outside of what we know. The sin that we know is looked upon as more comfortable than the uncertainty, the fear of the unknown.
How long did it take you to accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior?
Was it an easy decision to follow Christ?
Have you stepped outside of your comfort zone and done something to help spread the Gospel? Have you done more than sitting in a church for an hour a week?
The Lord is calling us to take a step of faith. He is calling us to step outside of our comfort zones. He is calling us to share His Gospel with those who have not heard. We have been given an assignment. We are to share His grace and mercy to anyone and everyone.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
(Romans 10:14-15 (NIV))
Not all of us are called to go half way around the world, but we are all called to do something. Are you willing to stand up and say, “Here am I. Send me!”
Are you ready and willing?
