“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me” (Isa. 6:8).
After seeing the Lord sitting upon a throne, and the seraphims, that powerful scene caused Isaiah to exclaim, “Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts” (Isa. 6:1-5). One of the seraphims touched a live coal from off the altar on Isaiah’s mouth (lips) and declared his iniquity was taken away and his sin purged (Isa. 6:6-7). The Lord then asked that powerful question, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” (Isa. 6:8).
Before I can go for the LORD I need to make sure any sin in my life is dealt with properly (cf. Rom. 10:17; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 8:18-24; Rev. 2:5; Rev. 3:19; 1 John 1:5-10). The message Isaiah was to take to the people found fulfillment in the masses who refused to listen with all the faculties God had given them (cf. Matt. 13:10-15; Acts 28:17-29). Some will hear the message and believe and some will not (cf. Acts 28:24). We still go for the LORD every day.
Here am I! Send me!
