Repairer of the Breach/High Call of God
by Jenine McCune
Isaiah 58:6-12 "Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness. To undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; When you see the naked, that you cover him. And not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning. Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you. the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; You shall cry and He will say, "Here I am". If you take away the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, If you extend your soul to the hungry And satisfy the afflicted soul, Then your light shall dawn in the darkness, And your darkness shall be as the noonday. The Lord will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought. And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Those from among you Shall build the old waste places: You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell in." When I read this scripture I think of the many ministries I have been a part of in many years past as a Christian. Some were real good ones and others were not so good. I've seen greed and backbiting as well as the "building up of the "ministry" instead of building up lives. I believe the HIGH CALLING OF GOD is the calling to build lives. What ministers to a person who has not eaten all day? Of course, food. What touches the woman who is a single mother and struggling to keep clothing on her kids. Of course, clothing and funds. What ministers to the unbeliever. Kindness. Love. Thoughtfulness. I wonder if lost souls really care about some of our large church buildings and the realing in of tithes and offerings. When I feel lost, the building does not comfort me. When I was poor, it did not impress me to give to "our new grounds fund". Our religious "meetings" do not impress God if the needs of people go unmet. God is a giving God and to be as He is, we MUST give. Of course we do have large ministries who have missions and give to them very generously, but I have seen in my own city the streets that are lined with poverty stricken children and buildings that should be condemned. Where are the "pillers" of our community? Where is the church? Oh, of course, you can find us gathering on Sunday as usual and counting the days we have been in church and not missed but ONE Sunday in the last 25 years!! But who have we fed today? Today, what need has been met and what good have we done as ministers of God? God gives us blessings for accepting his HIGH CALL. It is the call to feed His people...to clothe the naked and to invite the poor to supper with us. If we are healed, we are to minister healing. If we are blest with encouragement, we are to encourage the broken. Some of the "streets" that are dwelt in that are right in our own backyard are in need of God. Who is going to minister to break the yoke of those afflicted? When will we accept the High call of God?? Rev. Jenine
