I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion Here Am I, Send Me

Isaiah 6:8-9a 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.
And he said, Go, and tell this people,…”

Do I see the need
People dying
In huts and houses
In dungeons and mansions
Lying to themselves
“But I’m a good person”
While seeking to fill the void inside
With sex, drugs, power, wealth
With family, good works, even religion?

Who will go and share the truth
All have sinned.
Not stop there, but proclaim His name,
Jesus came, died on the cross,
And rose again to life.
The only One able to fill
the void of darkness and despair inside?

Will we share Jesus,
As the Savior who lives to offer
forgiveness,
help,
hope
To all willing to come, bow,
accept His gift of life
now and for eternity?

Who will proclaim Christ’s love,
His message of wholeness in Him alone
Will I?
Will you?

Lord, help me have a willing heart to share You with a hurt and hurting, often rejecting, world. Amen.

Colossians 1:9b-10 …(We) do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That you might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
