Jerks for Jesus

“Jacob was a manipulator, Peter was impulsive, John had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossip, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was afraid, Jeremiah was depressed, Moses stuttered, Zacchaeus was short, Abraham was old, Lazarus was dead… God does not call the qualified—He qualifies the called.” —Unknown

What can’t God do through you today? It’s not about your qualifications, it’s about His—and He chose you. On Purpose.

Have a mighty day.


Pray for Your Pastor

You may not even go to church, but pastors are still a presence in your neighborhood. They’re (mostly) holy-men, people you seek out when the world goes wrong or when God comes knocking. They’re also human—and the devil hates them. Behind all the spirituality there’s a battle going on…

“Pray for your pastor: 97% of pastors have been falsely accused or hurt by their trusted friends; 70% of pastors battle with depression; 7,000 churches will close each year; 1,500 pastors quit each month; 10% will retire a pastor; 80% of pastors feel discouraged; 94% of pastor’s families feel the pressure of the ministry. 78% of pastors have no close friends; 90% of pastors report working 55-75 hours per week. Pray for your pastor.” —Victor Marx

Thanks for praying.
