Are you a put together person? Do you have training, experience, know how and talent? Do you have an all go, no quit attitude? Have you never given up, never walked away and never surrendered? That’s good to know, I would prefer you not partner with me in any ministry venture or activity. If you have it all together, just do your own thing.
If you are flawed and broken however, if you mess up and are broken, call me. If you lack talent, sometimes fail, want to quit and often don’t have the answers, we should work together. If you have failed, quit, run, been hurt or wounded, then you are in good company. Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, Isaiah, Peter all experienced those things. God took ordinary, humble, broken people who were real and frail and did amazing things. I want to see amazing things happen through ordinary people, I’m not so excited about extraordinary people doing ordinary things.
Are you flawed and broken? Are you hurt, frail and often afraid? Are you inexperienced, ill equipped and unsure? Perfect, let’s change the world.
