Whom shall we send?

See Isaiah 6:5.

It was recently suggested to me that the “Great Commission” was directed to the apostles, not to us.¹  It’s true that we all have different gifts, but we all need to be “able to answer”.  As for different gifts, some agencies have suggested “six ways to reach God’s world:” LEARN; PRAY; GO; SEND; WELCOME; and MOBILIZE.

Many of us remember the admonition to “pray for workers,” but I just noticed today that Jesus said that to those who were already sent—and there were more than twelve of them.

¹Would that imply that Stephen and Phillip were not acting in God’s will?
