When God calls
Ed M. considers our calling, based on Isaiah 6.8:
God calls. The Lord is not dead. He has not retired. He is not silent. He actively invites us to enter His service, to deliver His message. When He calls, we should immediately jump to our feet and do what He says, Mark 10:49,50.
In 1984 I was explaining in a Bible class about how great was the need for workers in the world and how few we were sending. A brother asked, “What can we do? How can we reverse this situation?” I paused, looked at him, and said, “Send your children.” The silence was deafening.
Focus question: How am I reacting to God’s call today?
