The adequacy in God

The Bible is full of illustrations of God calling and prodding people into service in spite of their overwhelming sense of inadequacy. They were thrust into ministry environments almost against their wills. For example Jesus was constantly stretching the disciples faith. In the story of the feeding of the five thousand Jesus said to the disciple “They do not need to go away you give them something to eat”. Matt 14:16 It was a test of their faith. Like us the disciples make excuses and tell him things he already knows “we have here only five loaves of bread and two fish”. Jesus said “Bring them here to me”. In other words just bring what you have and I’ll work with that. When we do that we will experience Emmanuel God with us. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church however inadequate you feel about the process, for God says “I have called you by name, you are mine.”
