Today I ran across a note I wrote at campmeeting at Elim Bible Institute about 1 Timothy 1:12:
I continue to be impressed by that verse last night’s speaker hit on: 1 Timothy 1:12: “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry…” (NKJV)
My NIV says “…who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.”
One of his main points was that we all end up questioning God and saying WHY am I in the ministry? I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR THIS!!!! And it’s good to be able to remember that HE is the one who strengthened and enabled us and HE is the one that felt we were faithful and HE is the one that put us into & appointed us to HIS service of ministry.
There are many days when I need to be reminded of that. And I bet I’m not alone!
