“Select seven men who are well respected and are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them this responsibility.” (Acts 6:3)
Do you have any abilities God can use? Too often believers shrink back from a “God-calling” because they feel less gifted than others. But think about these points:
1. Do you share our Lord’s interest in the kingdom of God? . . . Yes.
2. Do you have a sense of loyalty to Jesus Christ who paid the penalty for your sin? . . . Yes.
3. Do you desire to see God’s kingdom grow by adding repentant sinners? . . . Yes.
4. Do you trust God’s wisdom in selecting people to work in His kingdom? . . . Yes.
If God put these positive responses in your heart, wouldn’t He equip you with the ability to fulfill them? The church needs Timothies and Tituses. Not everyone needs to be a Paul or Peter. It needs unknowns like Eubulus, Pudens, Linus, and Claudia. Please put your abilities to work for Christ. You will be glad you did!
