Isaiah’s life-changing encounter with God, recorded in Isaiah 6, was prefaced by the song of the seraphim crying "Holy, Holy, Holy; the whole earth is filled with His glory" …and then followed by God speaking with himself in asking "Who will I send, and who will go for us?"
But God was not calling Isaiah specifically. Isaiah, intensly atuned to his sinfulness before this Holy God, confesses his sin and moves forward in answering this general call to serve by saying "Here am I, send me."
Two thousand years after the crucifiction & resurrection of Jesus Christ, from the grave, the cclear ommand of Matthew 28:19 & 20 still resounds today "Go into all the world and [as you are going] make disciples (followers) of [from among] ALL nations and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age." …yet we’ve failed to follow His command because we say we have not been called. –But why do we need a call when we have a command?
There are still thousands of language groups who have not heard the good news of the gospel. Is it their fate or is it our failure to go to them with this life changing message?
Someone said "When men are heathen by choice that’s their business… but when men are heathen by no choice, that’s OUR business." Many people today do not like the word ‘heathen’ but that’s what God calls those who are without Christ. We desperately need to reach ALL lost men, women, boys & girls with the gospel of Christ so that they too can experience the satisfying life we have in Christ.
The Apostle Peter says that we can hasten our Lord’s return by heralding forth the life-giving message of the gospel. What a delight to know that WE can be involved in doing this.
Isaiah heard a call that really wasn’t intended for him but he went anyways. –We have a command to go and an invitation to hasten the return of our Lord through our witness, and still the world has not been reached. What is it going to take to get us moving?
