"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.
Isaiah 6:8

Volunteer's For God

There is no silence so deep, none so embarrassing, none so penetrating, as the silence that usually follows the question, "There is work to do! Any volunteers?"
Those at a meeting sit very still in their chairs,
eyes cast down, as the chairman searches the group for some sign of willingness to serve. The poor moderator, at that moment, must have some inkling of the pained silence in heaven as God too seeks servers.

Messengers by the millions, the angels, yearn to do God's work. Yet for the love of humankind, He gives us opportunities to share in His plan for the world. God permits us to give food to the hungry, wisdom to the ignorant, healing to the sick, and hope to the confused. He wants to use us so we may have the joy of participating in service. It is regrettable that the most common response to His call is silence. Instead of an eager "I'll go!
The loyal sons and daughters of the loving Father
too often sit mute.

"The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it glad." Proverbs 12:24,25

"He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich." Proverbs 10:4

God gave us hands to work for Him. Not hands for selfish gain, but hands for faithful stewardship of God's resources.

"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only , deceiving your own selves." James1:22

How prone we are to fill pews but never do anything as a result. We need to volunteer our services to those in need!

"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed." James 1:25

Because Jesus Christ's hands were pierced for us and our hands were made clean by His shed blood, we offer Him our hands for His tasks. With praying hands we seek His will and His strength. From His open hands we receive both the opportunity and the ability to volunteer our services to others.

May we all go out and serve God voluntarily by telling sinful people that God put His only Son on Calvary's cross to set us free! By God's grace, let each one of us say with Isaiah: "Here am I! Send me!"

"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

God bless you all as you volunteer yourselves to help those in need.
