Audio lessons of the Oldham Lane Church of Christ.
Here Am I, Send Me!
Before Isaiah could see the mission that God had for him, he had to see God for who He truly was. The prophet could not fully grasp the mission until he grasped the holiness of God. However, it wasn’t just about a proper perspective of God. It was about a proper perspective of Isaiah as well. The prophet had to view himself in relation to God’s holiness before he could comprehend the magnitude of God’s calling.
This Is Us—Wonder Woman
What makes a mother a “wonder woman” is her spiritual strength as she battles the foe and his forces of evil. She may embody some, most, or all of the characteristics of a Proverbs 31 woman. But above all else, this “wonder woman” is dubbed as such because she returns her child to its rightful owner. She gives her child back to the King.
Here I Am, Send Someone Else
Playing it safe doesn’t take faith. Paul didn’t play it safe. The apostles, after the resurrection and ascension of their Lord, didn’t play it safe. We can’t play it safe either. Faith demands that we take risks.
This Is Us—Superman
Our homes should be a little city of refuge. A fortress of solitude where, no matter what’s going on in the world around them, our children can find peace and security. It should also be a place where they find wisdom and instruction. Most importantly, it should be a place where they find God.
Here I Am, Don’t Send Me!
Our attitude, our mantra, our livelihood should reflect the statement made by Isaiah—“Here am I. Send me!” This isn’t about whether or not I should go. The issue isn’t about where I would rather go. This is about going where God has called us to go—into all the world, making disciples of all nations; baptizing in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
This Is Us—Be A Mirror
The goal of family is to be a visible portrait of God. We are to be a reflection of the US who created us. We were made to be image-bearers.
