Are You A Resource For The Cause of Christ?
I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come. I reached out to you, but you paid no attention.
Proverbs 1:24 (NLT)
Jesus Christ, as a man, had no one but Himself at the beginning of His earthly ministry. Yet from the void, he created resources. He chose men empty of spiritual sense, empty of anointing, empty of knowledge of the word and he made of them resources. Resources so powerful that you and I today can boast of knowing the works of Jesus, as He accomplished them. It took him just three years to make his own resources. It was only after his ascension that these resources were activated for our salvation today.
Don't tell me you don't have the resources to do God's will. Tell me that you are lazy or that you feel too comfortable in your comfort zone to lower yourself to make disciples who will become resources later. Or maybe you want to be the only one who knows everything and knows the answers. Think again!!! Moses did not have knowledge in many things, yet from him God drew cabinetmakers, woodcutters, because He had accepted the anointing and the mission granted to him. Peter and his friends were fishers, they became fishers of men and our instructors today through their writings. Matthew didn't know anything other than changing the 6 to 9 on taxes to make more money and today, it's thanks to him that we can talk about the sermont on the mount.
What I like about all of this is that the one who was in himself a resource, Paul, came late on the list, after the establishment of the apostles. He was just one more resource because there was a need that required additional knowledge.
Are you yourself a resource available to God or do you continue to find excuses not to serve God as He asks?
