Interview for the Truth

English Audio Version

A job interview can be a critical moment.

We’ve presented our resume, but it’s how we handle ourselves face to face that determines if we are hired on the spot.

The questions come at us, and we field them as best we can. If we stumble, we’ll appear unprepared, and the job will go to someone else.

What’s involved in our interview with God?

Certainly, the Word says to come all who are weary, and I will give you rest. (Matt. 11:28) But what about when we want to do something for God?

What does God require of us before he sends us out on a mission to do his will?

1 Timothy 2:15 gives us good insight into what God’s standards are:

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.”

This verse gives us three directives if we want God to approve of our application to do good works for him.

1. We must step up and ask God for a position in his Army. We can’t sit around and wait for him to come to us.

2. We must live our lives with a clean and open conscience. We can’t allow any wrongdoing to ding our reputation.

3. We must read the Bible as the spoken words of God. Its truth cannot be twisted into what we want it to say.

Schedule an interview with God today. Request a job assignment, any job assignment. Go into his presence with a pure heart and see what he has for you to do.

Clean living opens windows for God to work through us.

Excerpt of the Day

When we are broken for God, we are exactly who he needs us to be.
