Vertical Connection – November 12

Send to me.Isaiah 6: 8 “Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I replied: Here I am, send me ”. This text is part of the story of Isaiah 6, where the prophet sees the Lord sitting on his throne, surrounded by seraphim who with one voice proclaim holy, holy, holy, such was the majesty of the one who was sitting there that even the stands or marks from that place they shook and the whole house was filled with Smoke. In the presence of God, Isaiah recognizes that he is a man with filthy lips, understands that because of his sinful situation he deserves to die, and expresses his concern with an anguished exclamation… ”Oh, me! that I am dead; ” (See 5). But nevertheless; God responds to your anguish and at that very moment and through his infinite mercy, he removes your guilt and cleanses you of your sin. Imagine what the prophet may have experienced. In a moment he is faced with the consequence of his sin; death, is confused and filled with anguish, feels hopeless before such an opinion, but in a matter of seconds God frees him from his sin, removes all condemnation and suddenly changes the verdict to life. I think we have all felt this way when we met God, we understand that in the face of such holiness we have no excuse, we cannot justify ourselves and we feel like dead. God in his mercy and through his son Jesus gives us hope, changes our death sentence as a result of sin and gives us life through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Colossians 2:14 “nullifying the handwriting of decrees that was against us, which was contrary to us, taking it out of the way and nailing it to the cross.” What is striking is the attitude of Isaiah when feeling forgiven, he now not only hears the archangels proclaiming the holiness of God, but he can hear the cry of God looking for someone to send to his people. Without thinking twice, the prophet answers; send me, probably not fully understanding the implications of such service, but convinced that the least he could do with a chance at life was to serve his savior. Just as our character completely surrendered to God’s calling and purpose for his life, every believer who has understood the value of Christ’s forgiveness and sacrifice should have the same attitude. The only way to answer before such a show of unconditional love is a total surrender, understanding that although our debt to sin was paid, we are still debtors of the one who saved us out of love, of the one who gave everything so that we could have that second opportunity.   Make sure you live each day not only in complete gratitude but in total service to the one who led us from death to life, the one who conquered death and gave us hope, the one who sits on the throne, crying out for someone who is willing to live. for him. Romans 14: 8 “For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, for the Lord we die. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord ”. There is no other way to live than for his glory
