What qualifies you as dispensers and purveyors of the gospel of Jesus Christ? A wall of sheepskins? Ordination certificates? Accolades and praises of men?
Believe me, there are plenty of people who think exactly that, and perhaps that accounts for some aberrations in the Church of Jesus Christ.
To think or believe that, one has to stray from the truth of Scripture. Paul is crystal clear today:
2 Corinthians 3:6 (Amplified Bible) – “[It is He] Who has qualified us [making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient] as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not [ministers] of the letter (of legally written code) but of the Spirit; for the code [of the Law] kills, but the [Holy] Spirit makes alive.”
It is Jesus Christ who has qualified us. He is the One Who “makes” us fit for service in the Kingdom of God on earth.
Because of that, and that alone, we are qualified to “tell the story”.
Yes, the gospel. It’s THE “story”. There is none greater.
You are fit for service. You have been qualified and made ready. So get out there and tell
the story of the redemption of the human race from sin by the Savior Jesus Christ.
It’s a simple message. Don’t be afraid. You already have the words in you. Trust Him that He will bring them out.
Keepin’ it Real,
