Are you qualified to serve God?

"The difference between Uncle Sam and Jesus Christ is that Uncle Sam won't enlist you unless you are healthy and Jesus won't enlist you unless you are sick. 'Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.' (Mark 2:17)"

--John Piper, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals

I am highly qualified. :) What a wonderful truth that all the "healthy" people of the church need to know.

Joel--I don't know about you, but it feels great for me to finally be really qualified for something.

Of course, all I did to get qualified was trust in Jesus...
