And then I heard the voice of the Master: “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” I spoke up,“I’ll go. Send me!”
Isaiah 6:8 (The message)
The Sender & The Sent
The sheer injustice of mercy
Unequivocal, unrelenting forgiveness
He refused to go to Nineveh,
Determined to play no part
In such an undeserved stay of judgement.
In desperation he sailed,
Hoping the vastness of the oceans
Would hide him,
That anonymity would dull the call.
Yet even the deep resonated
With the presence
Of the one who would not let go.
The free flow of grace
Always comes with a cost;
The message and the messenger;
The sender and the sent.
Beyond the boundaries of reason
