An Awesome Responsibility

Are you ready for some real responsibility today? If you went to Church yesterday, or were imparted some nugget of spiritual truth, you are now responsible for it. You can no longer plead ignorance. In your hands is the key that will unlock someone’s life today. Will you jealously hold onto it as if it is your own? Did you invent this truth? Did it come to you by inspiration? Is it truly yours? No, you were taught it yesterday by someone else who received it from God’s Word. Now you are responsible for sharing it with someone else.

As Isaiah stood in his vision of the Lord’s Temple, he heard the Lord reasoning within Himself, asking who will go to the people of Israel and tell them of His great plans for them. Seeing no one else around, Isaiah volunteered. “Here am I. Send me.” I fear we are far more likely to see others, point to them, and say, “There’s somebody. Tell them to go. I’m too busy.” That may have been true surrounded by Christians, fellow believers and worshippers, but what about today? Who will convey God’s message to the people in your workplace? Who will tell others at the store or the shop? Look around you. Is there anyone else? God today is saying, “I have great plans for the people of the world. Who will go and tell them?” What will you say?

“Here am I. Send me. I will tell them.”

You are sent. Go and tell.

Lord Jesus help me today to remember my commission as a child of God. I have been sent to tell the world of Your majesty, Your holiness, Your judgment, and Your mercy and grace through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Help me remember what I need to say to those that need to hear it, because I bear the greatest message in the world. Help me tell them about Jesus. In His Name I pray, Amen.
