GOD QUALIFIES THE CALLED

BIble Text: When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus." (Acts 4:13)

Indeed, Peter and John were Galilean fishermen with no formal education, but they had the one essential qualification for ministry - they had been with Jesus. It was as if the Sanhedrin said, “These guys are just like Jesus!  We thought we solved the Jesus problem when we crucified Him, but now it is worse than ever!” Because they had been with Jesus, they are naturally bold.

When you are a servant of the all-powerful God, what do you fear from the courts of man?

Don’t feel bad because you never graduated or never had chance to go into university or never been to school at all...Do you know that it is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated? The man who graduates today and stops learning tomorrow is uneducated the day after, what about that?

My parent will always say “A child educated only at school is an uneducated child”

Parent take notes. Winston Churchill said “It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. The quotations, when engraved upon the memory, give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.”

Never say to yourself, “God can never use me. When Jesus called the 12, most of them were not even educated. Yet, Jesus equipped them and they turned the world upside down.
