Quote to Consider:

John Calvin on Isaiah 6:8: "Besides, it is a powerful aid to our confidence, when we know that we are not destitute of the necessary gifts, but that God has bestowed them on us, in order that we may be better enabled to discharge our office. Now this remarkable instance of obedience ought to produce such an effect on our minds that we shall readily and cheerfully undertake any task which he may be pleased to enjoin, and shall never refuse any task, however difficult we may imagine it to be. When the Prophet says, ‘Here am I,’ the meaning is, that he is ready to obey the commands of God; for this mode of expression is frequently employed in Scripture to denote obedience."
