The Corporation for National Community Service says more than 60 million Americans volunteer annually to help various causes in our country. They do it because they think the causes are worth it. When Isaiah the prophet volunteered to be God’s spokesperson, he had two primary reasons for doing so, according to Isaiah chapter 6. In the Temple, God revealed Himself as sitting on a throne, high and lifted up. To Isaiah, God was in the place of authority, and with angelic-like seraphim attending God, Isaiah was deeply moved by His majesty and glory. From seeing this, Isaiah concluded God was fully worthy of his total surrender. He would do whatever God wished him to do. So when he heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” Isaiah volunteered, “Here I am. Send me” (v. 8). This leads us to the conclusion that when we get a clearer vision and appreciation of God’s greatness and authority, like Isaiah, we also will say, “Here I am, Lord. I am willing to do whatever You desire of me.” Today, God invites us to gaze intently at His immense majesty and authority. As we do, we will volunteer to honor God and help others.
