Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, Noah got drunk, David had an affair, Paul was a murderer, Miriam was a
gossip, Abraham was old, Lazerus was dead, Gideon was insecure, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter,
Sarah was impatient, Elijah was depressed, Moses stuttered, and zaccheus was short. God does not expect people to
be perfect. God does not call the qualified. He qualifies the called. We must understand that once He calls us, we are
qualified to do what He wants us to do. You do not have to look a certain way. He will call you if you open up your
heart to Him and ask His forgiveness.
Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
He expects nothing else from us but to live our lives according to His word and follow Him. You know it is really not that hard once we decide to follow Him. Is it easy? It may seem hard to do if you are not really living the life you should be living. You may think you have to give up too much but once you decide to follow Christ, you are not really giving up much of anything.
