Hark, the Voice of Jesus Crying
In the Word
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
Of the Word
Hark, the voice of Jesus crying, “Who will go and work today?
Fields are white and harvests waiting — Who will bear the sheaves away?”
Loud and long the Master calleth; Rich reward He offers thee.
Who will answer, gladly saying, “Here am I, send me, send me”?
Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Matthew 9:37–38
“Hark, the Voice of Jesus Crying” encourages us to listen as God speaks to us. In His Word, God gives us the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ. He also gives us the direction — the command — to share that Good News with all people.
The whole world needs to know the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ right now! We are urged to heed God’s call through His Word, spreading the news of salvation to everyone, everywhere. We “Take the task He gives you gladly, Let His work your pleasure be; Answer quickly when He calleth, ‘Here am I, send me, send me!’”
Walking with my Lord
O Lord of the Harvest, send me! In Your life-changing name I pray. Amen.
