Reflections Along the Jesus Way
April 23, 2023 – Quote for the Day:
“You know, almost every time that God came to someone in the Bible to tell them he wanted them to fulfill a certain responsibility, he received a similar response. Moses said he wasn’t fit for the job because he had a speech impediment. Jonah of course ran away in the opposite direction. When Peter became more aware that Jesus was God in the flesh, he told Jesus to get away – because Peter knew he was a sinful man.
I absolutely relate to such stories. I know that we humans generally feel fearful and intimidated when God seems to be telling us what he has in store for us and virtually all of us have the same reaction: ‘God, I’m not qualified. You have the wrong person. I don’t think I have what it takes to fulfill what you have in mind.’ In reply God could easily say, ‘You don’t think I know about your lack of qualifications?’”
