He is not going to plead...

"Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me."  Isaiah 6:8

Ever read a verse or portion of the Bible for "first time" eventhough you haver read it several times before?  How many times have we read this verse? Yet, just a few days ago I got the sence that I had read it for the first time as I felt I had been missing a simple yet import point.  So many times I had read this as the call of Isaiah, but it is so much more.

The way that it is written has Isaiah standing by, hearing a conversation.  He hears the thought, or need, expressed about workers going out in the name of the Lord.  Think about it for just a momment and picture Isaiah standing up in response to a request that he has overheard. He simply hears a need and states, "send me."  God did not coerce or plead with him, yet Isaiah answered the call to go for God.  

Oswald Chambers wrote, "The call of God is not for the special few, it is for everyone.  Whether or not I hear God's call depends upon the state of my ears."  Are we listening for God to call so that we can answer, saying, "here am I, send me.?"  I hope we are, because He will not beg and plead.  He may simple go on to the next person who is listening.

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
