I originally posted this in January of 2015.
I wanted to share this little story that I found. It’s kinda funny, but it’s just another reminder that
Although We Have Not been Perfect…CHRIST Has Perfected Us!!
God Wants You👈…Just the Way You are…and He can make You Better!!
Here’s the story…
Sometimes do you ever wonder why God called you to do something for Him? There are many reasons why God shouldn’t have called you, or me, or anyone else for that matter, but God doesn’t wait until we are perfect to call us. Think of all those God used. You’re in good company if you think you aren’t ready for God to use.
Abraham lied…Sarah laughed at God’s promises.
David’s armor didn’t fit.
John Mark was rejected by Paul.
Timothy had ulcers.
Hosea’s wife was a prostitute.
Amos’ only training was in the school of fig-tree pruning.
Jacob was a liar.
David had an affair.
Solomon was too rich.
Jesus was too poor.
Abraham was too old.
David was too young.
Peter was afraid of death.
Lazarus was dead.
John was self-righteous.
Naomi was a widow.
Paul was a murderer.
So was Moses.
Jonah ran from God.
Miriam was a gossip.
Gideon and Thomas both doubted.
Jeremiah was depressed and suicidal.
Elijah was burned out.
John the Baptist was a loudmouth.
Martha was a worry-wort.
Mary may have been lazy.
Samson had long hair.
Noah got drunk.
Did I mention Moses had a short fuse?
So did Peter, Paul and lots of folks.
But God doesn’t hire and fire like most bosses because He’s more like our Dad than a boss. He doesn’t look at financial gain or loss. He’s not prejudiced or partial, nor sassy and brassy, nor deaf to our cry. He’s not blind to our faults. His gifts to us are free. We could do wonderful things for others and still not be wonderful – ourselves.
Satan says, “You’re not worthy!”
Jesus says, “So what??…I AM.”
Satan looks back and sees our mistakes.
God looks back and sees the Cross!!

Yes! When there is an issue between father and son, A father will encourage and press his son towards excellence instead of firing him immediately.

This something about God we should appreciate…God doesn’t hire and fire like most bosses because He’s more like our Dad than a boss.
