Summary: It is to help those who are feeling the call to leadership not to fear, but to answer God.
Is. 6:1-8 How Will You Answer the Call
Intro:Soon we will be asking for new leaders for the
next Church Year. I’ve been praying that God would
raise up some new leaders. It is very difficult to grow a
Church when there are people who will not step into
leadership positions. Many of the leaders in positions
today are ready step down and let some others take the
reigns. Some may say, “I don’t know what to do.” We
have those who can teach the new leaders, and would
be willing to help to get you started. There are those
who are willing to share their wisdom. There was a
great prophet in the O.T. that was young and had no
idea of what to do, but said “Here am I, Send me.” By
listening to God, he became a great prophet of God.
What would you do if you saw what Isaiah saw that day
in God’s house. Let’s look at the first 8 verses of
chapter 6 of Isaiah.....
I. Notice The Majesty of Yahweh.[1-4]

Con:Have you seen Jesus in your life? Has Jesus
forgiven your sins? If not, this morning is the time of
your salvation. If He has, Jesus calls to you this
morning to be a part of the great work of salvation to
the lost. We need believers to care for the church and
to be ready to speak a word of love to the lost. I hope
you will answer Jesus this morning. Let’s pray.
