I really have a problem with folks who think I am special. I am not. Because I have been called to this office, pastor, does not mean that I have some special Godly resource or connection that others do not. This teaching from 1 Corinthians chapter 1 (NLT) makes it very clear. God has chosen the “common” folks of the world to share His message and convey the truth about Jesus as the Christ of God. In this regard I am, as you are also, one of the “CHOSEN” of God! As the Holy Spirit abides in you, so you abide in Him – together, yes, we walk through the world living and spreading the Gospel – even using words – when absolutely necessary.
