What Do You Want On Your Resume?

We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10–11, NIV 1984).

My Musings – It’s been quite a while since I had to prepare a resume, and I am at that age that it is unlikely I will need to do so again. But unless things have changed, resumes typically outline your qualifications, such as education and experience, as well as the significant accomplishments thus far in your career.

In the spiritual realm, the only qualifications that matter is whether or not you have been born again. Until that point, accomplishments do not matter for much. But after that they matter a great deal. There are things that God has fashioned us for, has prepared us for, that He meant for us, and only us, to accomplish. These were planned out for us long before we came to be, and before we were born again.

My Advice – So how is it going? What’s on your resume? What do you want on your resume? Is there a gap between the two that needs to be closed? Don’t feel that you are not qualified to accomplish these things, whatever they may be. If God prepared you for it, you are more that qualified. He would not call you to do something He had not prepared for you. When He calls you home, don’t you want to hear “well done” (i.e., “very impressive”)?
