We Are Chosen To Tell About God’s Excellent Qualities: Chapt. 29 Purpose Driven Life

We resume our regularly scheduled program after a short interruption brought to you by: L I F E ! Thanks for your patience and understanding. 🙂
“You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you.” 1 Peter 2:9
Today we start on chapter 29 beginning our study on our fourth purpose: To Serve God.
First, Rick Warren discusses how we accept our assignment from God. He tells us we were created, saved, called and commanded to serve God. We can serve God directly or indirectly. When we serve others, we are also serving God. Guess who we serve if we are serving neither God, nor others.
God often likes to have the least likely person serve. Moses stuttered, yet he spoke to all the slaves of Egypt and even to Pharaoh. Thomas doubted, yet he was one of the apostles to spread Christianity. Who are you? Are you a Jonah, an Elijah, a Martha, a Paul or a Timothy? It doesn’t matter to God if you appear under qualified or even totally wrong for the job. To God, you are absolutely perfect.
