Then I heard the Lord asking, ‘Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?’ I said, ‘Here I am. Send me.'” (Isaiah‬ ‭6‬:‭8‬ NLT)

A 29-year-old Canadian man was returning home from lunch when he was alerted by a neighbor about noises coming from a nearby dumpster that sounded like a baby crying. Immediately, the man jumped in and rescued the child, which had been wrapped in a plastic bag to die. Even though he had his own agenda, he stopped to become an accidental hero.

When God calls to us, just as He did to Isaiah, there must come that moment where you lay down your own agenda and plans in order to take up God’s. Our own plans often run at odds with what God desires because they are mostly selfish. To be available for God’s use means ridding from our life anything that would either compete with his agenda or make us spiritually unfit for a holy task.

As you are getting ready for church tomorrow, consider that God is constantly looking for willing workers to accomplish His tasks of reaching and enriching people’s lives. If you would be found capable, be willing to have your priorities changed. Be an intentional hero that affects eternities wherever you go! You are loved today!
