Luke 5: 8 Peter said, “Go away, from me, Lord for I am a sinful man.”
How often has the pastor or church council representative stood up and said, “We need more volunteers”? And the first thought that runs through our minds is a list of excuses why you can’t serve. “I’m too you,” “too old,” “not smart enough,” “too busy,” and the list goes on and on and on. Noah was too drunk, Abraham was too old, Moses stuttered, David was a ladies’ man, Isaiah swore too much, Jeremiah was too young, Peter was a sinner, and Paul was an adversary of the faith. It’s mot what skill you have, not your age, not anything else that God wants. He simply wants a willing heart and He will do the rest. The old saying reminds us, “God will not lead you where is grace will not keep you.” When God calls just say, “Yes,” and God will do the rest. Amen.
