Uniquely Qualified

The last few years our city government started moving employees from one position to another, often creating positions and handing out flashy new job titles. It has gotten to the point where citizens are realizing that many employees are not qualified for the title they have. During a recent meeting one committee member said, “In the city you have a lot of people wearing a lot of different hats. Eventually your programs will fail.” I’m reminded that in the body of Christ where we are uniquely qualified for our appointed position. Paul said, “And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? But eagerly desire the greater gifts” (1 Cor 12:28-31 NIV).
