Friday Tale: Unqualified:
If you've ever failed to qualify for something -
or been disqualified from something -
you know how discouraging it is to not be good enough.
Romans 3:12 says we're all unqualified,
or "worthless" on our own.
Thankfully, "the Lord never calls the qualified,"
as Henry Blackaby noted; instead
"God qualifies the called."
God chooses and appoints us to go bear fruit for Him
(Eph. 2:10), and then empowers us to do it.
What impeccable qualifications!
Now may the God of peace who brought
again from the dead our Lord Jesus,....
equip you with everything good that you may do His will,
working in us that which is pleasing in His sight,
through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever.
Amen.~ Hebrews 13:20-21
