Romans 1:15 – Paul says, “As much as is in me I am ready to preach the gospel.” He goes on to tell Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:5, “…you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work to introduce others to Jesus, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.” (NLT) 2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “…the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…”
You don’t have to be an exceptional athlete, brilliant scholar, talented artist, or successful business leader to be useful to God.
