Yesterday, I actually took a few moments and watched the Memorial Day service from Arlington National Cemetery. I even watch the majority of the President’s address. Yes, I know, what a boring Memorial Day right? Well, I had just finished a nice, extra hot 5 miler and stood watching the monitor while I cooled down enough to do anything else.
So, anyway, there was one thing that stood out. That’s actually not true, I did find the there were several very interesting points made by the speakers. But, back to the point, the President mentioned that in a letter he had received from the parents of a fallen soldier, the parents had quoted these words from Isaiah:
8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8, New International Version)
These seem pretty appropriate when thinking about a soldier heading off to battle. I think however, that these are also appropriate words for us to consider each day as we head off to the spiritual battlefields. And that is what this blog is about – daily buffeting our spiritually bodies, so that we are ready when we are sent. But in actuality we are sent every day.
So today, how will you answer the Lord’s call?
