“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me.’” (Isaiah 6:8 NKJV)
God said in the presence of Isaiah, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” In a sense, God is still asking this question. Whom shall I send? Who will go for us? Will you go? Will you stand in the gap?
If God’s Holy Spirit were to search among us today, I wonder if He would find men or women willing to stand in the gap. Willing to pray. Willing to be available. Willing to reach out to those who do not know Him.
A lot of Christians will say, “I’m too timid. I’m afraid of this and that.” But I think a lot of Christians don’t really have a burden for those who don’t know the Lord. I think if that burden is burning with enough passion, a believer will work through the obstacles.
That is not to say there aren’t things we should learn so we can share our faith more effectively. But if the burden is really there, a believer will go out and do something with it.
The bottom line is that sharing our faith isn’t really a big deal to many of us. This is why it is so important that we have a God-given burden for unbelievers.
I would rather make every mistake to be made in sharing my faith than to never do anything. At least I will hopefully learn something from my mistakes.
But when we do nothing for fear of being rejected or for fear we will not meet with resounding success, we are really missing what God has called us to do.
Do you care enough to share the gospel?
Thank You for this message. I admit to being the timid one, fear of what may take place, the out come or if I can’t explain something or make a mistake. I am dealing with this everyday but I keep reading Romans ch1 16-17 and I am really getting tired of myself for feeling this way. Is that possible to get tired of it!!! I wanna break free so badly of this. I need prayer and encouragement please. This battle is heavy but I believe God will help me as I try to push through and persevere
Sister , trusting Jesus is working in and through you, and don’t be discouraged just know God will use you, and He will help you , we can all share in different ways and we might not see the fruit but God sees the heart . So He will help us . God Bless you.
