Day 8: Here I Am Lord, Send Me
Jonah comes to us as an important figure in salvation history. A reluctant God-bearer, his discernment process wailed in him through much inner turmoil. He was a good man—just unsure of himself, and who he was before God. After accepting the unrelenting call of the Lord, he laid down his armor of fear and doubt and picked up the armor of God. He was chosen and like many of those chosen as messengers, it took a while for him to realize that God had his back.
