We have been chosen to serve

It's pretty funny to think about the fact that President -elect Barak Obama is getting high marks on his choices for cabinet members from all the talking heads. Someone even suggested that the stock was responding positively today to one of the selections.

It made me think of Jesus' choices to run his transition team and fill his high level posts. That's right he chose the twelve disciples to start it off but over the years he filled positions by calling on people like you and me. The truth is, if we are honest, I don't think many people would give him high marks. Yet the hope of the world rests on what we do with the calling God has given us.

We are to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world. We are to spread his love, offer his grace and call people into relationship with him. If we don't do it, the job will not be done. The most amazing thing is the fact that despite the world's lack of confidence in us, God believes we can do it. That is great news. He believes in us.

So let us go out and do what needs to be done.
