Wanted: the Weak, the Inadequate, the Willing

we want youWhen was the last time you did something that terrified you? I’m not talking Halloween spook house terrifying or the latest zombie movie terrifying. I’m talking stepping out in faith and doing that thing you said you could never do. Last week? Last month? Never?

Then maybe it’s time you did.

In less than two weeks, we’ll be starting our Equip Her bible studies again. Are you registered? If not, there’s still plenty of time. You can either register online or in person at the Women’s Ministry Booth over the next two weekends.

But here’s a challenge for you. If you want to grow your faith exponentially, if you want to feel God working in your life like never before, then in addition to signing up for a class, maybe it’s time you stepped out of your comfort zone and said “yes” to something you think you’re unable to do.

Have you felt God nudging you to lead a prayer group, start the path to becoming an Equip Her teacher, or write for our blog? What’s stopping you?

You don’t think you’re qualified? You feel inadequate? You think someone else will do the job so much better than you? Newsflash.  God isn’t looking for the super-capable, uber-confident, have-it-all-together super stars. He’s merely looking for willing servants. Don’t believe me? Then take a look at what the Bible has to say:

Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you.  Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.   God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important.   As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.    1 Corinthians 1:26-29 (NLT)

 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;                          2 Corinthians 4:7 (NASB)

Want people to sit back and say “Wow! Look what God can do”? Then give him your ordinary, less than perfect, inadequate self and see what He accomplishes.

What do you say? Are you willing?
