Qualified for Kingdom Work…

Tim Hansel in his book Eating Problems for Breakfast shares the following illustration about the qualifications of the apostles:

To: Jesus, Son of Joseph Woodcrafter's Carpenter Shop Nazareth 25922 

From: Jordan Management Consultants 

Dear Sir: 

Thank you for submitting the resumes of the twelve men you have picked for managerial positions in your new organization. All of them have now taken our battery of tests; and we have not only run the results through our computer, but also arranged personal interviews for each of them with our psychologist and vocational aptitude consultant. 

The profiles of all tests are included, and you will want to study each of them carefully. 

As part of our service, we make some general comments for your guidance, much as an auditor will include some general statements. This is given as a result of staff consultation and comes without any additional fee. 

It is the staff opinion that most of your nominees are lacking in background, education and vocational aptitude for the type of enterprise you are undertaking. They do not have the team concept. We would recommend that you continue your search for persons of experience in managerial ability and proven capability. 

Simon Peter is emotionally unstable and given to fits of temper. Andrew has absolutely no qualities of leadership. The two brothers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, place personal interest above company loyalty. Thomas demonstrates a questioning attitude that would tend to undermine morale. We feel that it is our duty to tell you that Matthew had been blacklisted by the Greater Jerusalem Better Business Bureau; James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus definitely have radical leanings, and they both registered a high score on the manic-depressive scale. 

One of the candidates, however, shows great potential. He is a man of ability and resourcefulness, meets people well, has a keen business mind, and has contacts in high places. He is highly motivated, ambitious, and responsible. We recommend Judas Iscariot as your controller and right-hand man. All of the other profiles are self-explanatory. 

We wish you every success in your new venture. 

Sincerely, 

Jordan Management Consultants

That is a fitting reminder that God does not need your qualifications for Kingdom work. He needs your personal commitment. Don’t let the world determine your capacity to serve God. Surrender to Him and He’ll equip you for His work.

WIRED… begins this evening for 100’s of students who will be challenged to live for God and who will serve God in ministry throughout our community this week. Be sure that you are praying for them every day.

TONIGHT… I will be sharing with you some exciting information about Sunday evenings this fall. Be here so you don’t have to rely on rumors. And remember, God is always trying to take us someplace new. I love being your Pastor!

For God’s Glory Alone,

Bro. Ray
