Isaiah’s YES

Isaiah’s YES

Passage: Isaiah 6

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Say YES

In the call of Isaiah, we see the willingness of the prophet Isaiah, as he says yes to God. However, a little less obvious is God’s challenge in recruiting. The words “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Show us that God Himself was having some difficulty in his recruiting efforts. We also see that the call was a difficult call. Isaiah was called to minister to a stubborn people. His call was to give God’s people another chance to say “No” so as to increase their culpability and prove the righteousness of God’s judgment. This was not a call to preach prosperity and achieve popularity. Rather, in saying YES, Isaiah was most certainly going to gain the disdain of his fellow Israelites.
