JoyM Team Commissioning NK 2014-9

Are you Qualified?

Here at Joy Christian Fellowship we believe that, as followers of Jesus Christ, we each have a personal responsibility to be involved in some way in helping fulfill His command to be His witnesses both here at home and around the world.  That responsibility begins in  our communities of Englewood and Midtown Manhattan and extends to our region, our country and the world.

If you call Jesus Savior and Lord, then rest assured He has a plan for your life as well!  Our heavenly Father desires for each of His children to use the gifts, talents and passions that he has given them to help fulfill His call to evangelize the world!  As a matter of fact the Great Commission is not a suggestion…it’s a command!  Jesus said in John 20:21 “As the Father has sent me, so also I send you.”  But don’t worry, whatever He calls you to do, He will equip you to do it.  Remember that God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called!  The only ability God needs from you is your availability!

Jesus told His disciples “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” If we are to accomplish the task He has given us to do, we need help…we need your help!   Take a look at our opportunities to serve and pray about where God would use you!  Just say ‘yes’ to God and watch Him use you in ways you never imagined.  Find your place in His plan to reach the world and it will change your life!  I challenge you to respond as Isaiah did and simply say “Here I am.  Send me.”  Don’t think you have much to offer?  You couldn’t be more wrong, just give Him what you have and watch Him take it and break it and feed the multitudes!
