Thanks for the various feedback you sent in response to the articles here on my website. Last week, I received a particular feedback that got me thinking. The person looked at the message in my discourse and concluded that, all though she agreed with the message, she was convinced that I was ‘ Not Qualified ‘ to be the carrier of such messages.
Her words hit me below the belt and I caught myself wondering if she was indeed true. You see, just like most of us, I wasn’t born a saint. Certain actions I have taken in the past would definitely justify her claims that I am not indeed qualified. I pondered on her words within a second but heard the Holy Spirit remind me that, ‘God doesn’t need you to be qualified before he uses you. Whoever He calls He qualifies.’
Like many of us, when we look back at our past, we would see certain deeds done that make us ‘not qualified’ to speak about salvation. Each time you step into a room you see the faces of the people you have hurt in the past. You go on the street and you see trails of your sinful past. After a close look at all this, you come to the same conclusion as most people – ‘ I am Not qualified ‘. I am here to announce that nothing could be further from the truth.
If any man be in Christ old things are passed away and behold all things have become new (2 Cor. 5 : 17) . Have you observed that when Jesus was on Earth, he chose the most unlikely people to be his disciple. He chose a timid fisherman named Peter, a scheming tax collector named Matthew, He spent an evening with a charlatan name Zaccheus , He protected an adulterous woman from being condemned. It was almost as though Jesus had an affinity for the lost, the sinner, the ‘Not Qualified’. No wonder He said, I have not come for the righteous but rather I came for the sinners (Luke 5 :32).
