Likeness to Jesus

It is not great talents God blesses so much as great likeness to Jesus. A holy minister is an awful weapon in the hand of God.

This quote from Robert Murray McCheyne is one of my favorites. I guess I often wonder about my skills, my talents, my gifts … am I really qualified to carry out the high calling of a minister of Jesus Christ? McCheyne reminds that it isn’t really about my gifts or talents in the end. I pray I might be enough like Jesus to make some difference.
