The Next time

xcuses.jpgThe next time you feel like God can never use you, just remember… Noah was a drunk, Abraham was too old, Isaac was a daydreamer, Jacob was a liar, Leah was ugly, Joseph was abused, Moses had a stuttering problem, Gideon was afraid, Samson had long hair and was a womaniser, Rahab was a prostitute, Jeremiah and Timothy were too young, David had an affair and was a murderer, Elijah was suicidal, Isaiah preached naked, Jonah ran from God, Naomi was a widow, Job went bankrupt, Peter denied Christ, The Disciples fell asleep while praying, Martha worried about everything, The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once, Zaccheus was too small, Paul was too religious, Timothy had an ulcer, AND Lazarus was dead! no more excuses now.”

  1. erm, problems with preaching naked, let me think:
    1. It tends to be quite draughty is Anglican Churches
    2. Despite a wide range of human skin colours there would be an issue with matching the liturgical colours of the season
    But on the plus side it would certainly disuade a holier or cleverer than thou mindset 🙂
