When I’m not studying up on or giving the He’s the Solution message, I’m running a financial company that dispenses private money for real estate transactions. Because of this, I have spent many an hour recruiting, qualifying, and hiring people.
Unlike a specialized job in computer coding or legal counsel, where years of experience put the contender head and shoulders above the competition, God takes you at face value and will hire you regardless of your past experience or knowledge. And, you don’t have to be a full-time pastor or missionary to serve God. You can serve Jesus in a multitude of ways:
- in your career
- your church involvement
- your relationships
- your decisions
- how you live your life
God is not looking for covert ministers of His word; rather, he’s looking for people to proclaim the Gospel of faith, hope, and peace through actions and words.
He simply wants you to “declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” It’s a clear, focused job description that anyone can do.
Yet many of us struggle with it. Witnessing can be frightening for many people. Yet, it’s as easy as just telling them your story. Tell them where you were before God’s love changed your heart and then tell them where you are today. Let them see how your life has transformed in God’s presence.
William Arnot, a distinguished Scottish pastor in the last century, said: “To every true Christian these two things may be said: You have need of Christ and Christ has need of you. The simple fact that a Christian is on earth and not in heaven is proof that there is something for him here to do.”
There is definitely something for you to do here. The question is, “Are you ready to take the job?”
