Episode 027 – The Power of Inadequacy
We welcome you once again to TheBLAST Podcast where we attempt to emulate just a fraction of what The Trumpet magazine does. We seek to inspire and encourage all Christians, especially those of the Christian Fellowship Ministries.In tonight's episode we explore the issue of inadequacy, and why it's important to possess as a believer. This is not an issue commonly spoken about in Christian media at large, and no wonder, it's incredibly unpopular to say "you're not good enough, and that's good enough for God to use you." Americans tend to focus on self-improvement, therefore that is the type of message much of the religious world caters to - the idea that you can make yourself good enough to accomplish whatever it is you want to accomplish. But is that biblical? We look at several examples including the Rich Young Ruler, Solomon, Adam, Esau and Saul. What's the outcome? Listen to find out!
After the break we continue our study, looking at the examples of the Apostles Peter, John and Paul. Specifically, Paul wrote so much about his insufficiency, which was counter-intuitive since he was basically a highly-trained religious scholar. He could have touted his own qualifications and accomplishments, but instead chooses to say, "when I am weak, then I am strong." Much of what we speak about in this episode was preached on brilliantly in the Truth for Life Podcast by Alistair Begg. Click here to check it out.
We include an excerpt from the book Standards of Ministry by Jay Nembhard, Foreward by Fred Rubi. C
