Have you ever talked with a job recruiter?

While I've never had to utilize the services of a professional recruiter . .  . I do find what they look for in recruits to be fascinating.

Thirty plus years ago, I had my insurance company marketing offices in the same building as a staffing agency and I found their profiles interesting.

Have you ever wondered about God's profile for those who fit His criteria for Kingdom service? 

There are many possibilities but I'm only going to share seven keys to effective Kingdom service.

1.  Mentally alert.

If you want to be a leader in the Kingdom. . .then you must be mentally alert.

Prayer keeps you alert and focused on your purpose.

1 Peter 1:13 in the Amplified Bible says:

Eleanor Roosevelt, former First Lady of the United States, once said:

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; and small minds discuss people.”

If you’ve got a great mind. . .focused on ideas. . .raise your hand.

Yes, I know we can’t see you but. . .God can.

And He’s the One that counts.

People who think about and act on ideas. . .are the ones who become winners in life.

Henry Ward Beecher once said:

“The ability to convert ideas to things is the secret of outward success.”

Are you dealing with ghosts?  I’m not talking about the kind that comes out at Halloween or in some goofy Hollywood movie.

Popular culture is filled with talk of ghosts. . .even television programs like Ghost Whisperer and movies like Ghostbusters. . .which I understand is being updated.

This teaching isn’t about any of the foolishness currently the rage on cable TV. 

When I mention the word ghosts I’m speaking about something from the past (sin or otherwise) which you feel is real though it isn’t visible to you or anyone else.

It is not God’s intent for us to be haunted by memories of things gone by.

No matter. . .how inhumane, degrading, sickening or horrible your sins of the past were. . .God forgives them. . .all.

If we’re haunted by the memories of forgiven past sins. . .the battle is being played out in the our minds. . .by the enemy of our destiny.
