Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old and Lazarus was dead. God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called!
Reflection Isn’t it amazing that God doesn’t want to leave us the way He found us? He wants us transformed into better versions of ourselves. Pastor Scott has said many times “God works with those who show up.” It is the very act of showing up that helps change us into who we were meant to be in Christ. “Do I hear you professing to believe in the one and only God, but then observe you complacently sitting back as if you had done something wonderful? That’s just great. Demons do that, but what good does it do them? Use your heads! Do you suppose for a minute that you can cut faith and works in two and not end up with a corpse on your hands?” (James 2:20 MSG) Put your Faith into action and see what God has in store for you. The ability comes after the availability. Be open to what God wants you to do in His name. Put yourself out there and God will give you the means to fulfill your potential. Can you think of an area at church, or your community where you can put your faith in action?
