In order to be a teacher in Pennsylvania, a person must complete student teaching placements and pass several content and methodology exams. There are other steps as well, but at this point, with student teaching complete and exams passed, the prospective teacher is now considered qualified to teach. Yet every year, on the first day of school, I stood in front of my students with butterflies and dry throat. The state said I was qualified, but I didn’t feel like it. As Christ-followers, God is calling us to share the truth of His love with the world around us, and we often feel unqualified, just as Isaiah did. But, the cross of Jesus Christ says we are qualified. We have been washed clean. So when God calls for someone to reach the people in Northeast Pennsylvania, will we respond as Isaiah did? “Here I am. Send me.”
Isaiah 6:1-8 NIV
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” 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!”
