I’ve always had a soft spot for the dialogue in Isaiah 6. After fearing for his life in the presence of the Lord, Isaiah finds the strength and presence of mind to respond boldly to the above question, ‘Here am I, send me’ Isaiah 6:8. This same question is asked of us each morning, but are we bold enough to proclaim ‘Here am I, send me’. It is a dangerous statement to make, because who knows what might follow. As we embark on a new academic year I would like us to consider our response, individually and corporately to the Lords question, ‘Whom shall I send?’ It is not now, nor will it ever be all about me, it is most definitely about us. Let’s take encouragement from the year gone, but look forward with renewed expectancy & hope to the year ahead.
