"The church serves not only as a venue for acquiring knowledge, but also as a hub for rallying individuals to engage in activities that promote God's kingdom."
- Inspirationalist, Bishop, W. F. Houston, Jr.
In the midst of an extraordinary world, God often calls upon the most unexpected individuals to fulfill His divine plan. Take Moses, for example, who was tasked by God to confront the formidable Pharaoh despite his difficulty with speech (Ex. 4:10). Similarly, Mary, a young woman soon to be married, was chosen to be the mother of Jesus – a role she never expected, but one that left her "highly favored" by God (Luke 1:28).
Esther, was an ordinary young woman faced with a critical situation. She may have questioned why God entrusted her with such immense responsibility. However, the Bible emphasizes that Esther was selected for "such a time as this" (Est. 4:14). God's purpose for her life led her to save His people, becoming a catalyst for change.
We are living in an era where God urgently requires dedicated servants to take courageous action. The church, often criticized for being all talk and no action, should not be merely a place of learning but rather a platform to mobilize individuals for kingdom activity, as highlighted in the Great Commission (Matt. 28:16–20).
The church's primary mission is to guide those unfamiliar with God towards a relationship with Him and witness the transformative power of His presence in their lives. This transformation should permeate all aspects of our existence – our marriages, families, and workplaces. As more people within the church experience God's life-changing touch, their impact on the world around them grows.
The living church of God serves as a formidable force for change, and He has summoned each one of us to be His agents of transformation.
God can utilize our unique abilities to serve Him despite our limitations. His search is not for perfect candidates but for devoted disciples willing to serve in these crucial times.
