|Making a Movie|
Whatever else I may think of the movie makers the one thing they often do right is casting the right people in the right part.
Gene Kelly in; “Singing in the rain”.
Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca.
Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz to name a few.
When you stop and think about casting it is what a successful life is all about, finding one’s self and playing the part you were born to play.
Too many never find that role in life that would maximize their abilities.
This same thing applies in the spiritual world for in the Kingdom of God each one of us has a part to play. It isn’t to be our choice for God has done the casting in the church.
1Corinthians 12:18 But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired.
This is what a director does in a movie. He puts the right people in the right place in order to make the best film.
If the person he wants to use is lacking in ability for some phase of the movie he gives them help in the form of teaching or training.
Often it might be learning to speak with an accent, or how to do certain dance steps. He is an enabler or an empowerer so they can function as needed.
God does a similar thing. He selects and then enables the chosen ones do his work and will.
1 Corinthians 12:5-6 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 12 explain how the ministry for GOD is suppose to work.
There are the stars who are more in the public’s eyes and there are those who are in the background never seen but have an important part to fulfill.
The most important thing is to know what your role is in the Kingdom of GOD is and to be faithful in it to the fullest degree.
Many mistakes have been made by those who thought they were called to play a part they weren’t called to play.
Those who are self anointed who have went where they were not sent and have done great damage to many souls.
Something that should be of a comfort to those who are called to a particular service; if you are called you will be enabled to do that which you have been sent to do.
Many a movie actor has thought; “I should have had a bigger part in this movie and perhaps some have felt the same way about what their calling is in God’s Kingdom.
While directors may make a mistake in casting a movie; God never does.
So whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it well.
