Our ‘But if You say so’ moment LUKE 5:1–11
As in last Sunday’s readings, we begin this week with another look at the awesome majesty of God as He interacts with yet another of His prophets. It is another commissioning as He cleanses the chosen Isaiah and readies him for service.
The result is when the Lord asks, “Whom shall I send? Who will be our messenger?” Isaiah replies, “Here I am, send me.” Isaiah was called to “Put out into the deep” to which call he was initially hesitant but having been touched by the cleansing power, he acquiesced. This is certainly a case of “But if You say so…” as is echoed in today’s Gospel reading.
