Here I am. Send me.

Series: The Gospel of Luke: Settled in Spirit | Week 4: It's What We Do

Read Isaiah 6:1-8

1. The prophet Isaiah is given a vision of the throne room of God in Heaven. Describe everything he sees in these verses.
2. What is Isaiah’s response to his vision of the holiness of God? How is it similar to Simon Peter’s response in Luke 5:8?
3. What happens to Isaiah after his confession and repentance?

1. Isaiah and Simon Peter have very similar experiences after coming face to face with the holiness and greatness of God. Both are also immediately given a calling to ‘go’ to people and be His hands, feet and heart. As you take a few minutes, yourself, to come into the presence of God, ask Him to help you love people above anything else in your life – your position, your politics or your preferences. Use the words of Isaiah and tell Him, “Here I am. Send me.”
2. Thank God for the truth that your guilt is removed and your sins are forgiven when you come to Him in true repentance. If you’re tired of trying to do things your way, take a minute now to lay down the load you’re carrying at the feet of Jesus. Confess you can’t do it on your own and invite Him to sit on the throne of your heart.

For Families with Kids at Home
As you reflect on Jesus calling you into a relationship not a religion, think of a creative way to talk to your kids about what this means to their lives’. Remember that Jesus has laid down his life so that we could be in relationship with God, and there is nothing we can do to earn that love that Jesus has shown us.
