A Job Application

October 2, 1998
by Chris Gill

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I heard you were considering a new manager in your life. I would like to apply for the job. I believe I am the most qualified candidate. I am the only one that has even done this job successfully.

    I was the first manager of human beings. In fact I made them, so naturally I know how humanity works, and what is best to get people back into proper working condition. It will be like having the manufacturer as your personal mechanic.

    If this is your first time considering me, I would just like to point out that my salary has already been paid by the blood of my son, Jesus on the cross of Calvary. What I need from you is the acknowledgement that the price is sufficient to pay for all of your sin and your independence from Me. I need you to believe this in your heart and to tell somebody else about your decision with your mouth.

    The next thing I ask is the right to change and fix your life so you can learn how to stay close to Me. I will make some major changes and revisions. They are not for you to worry about. I need your permission to execute these changes, in My way and in My time. I will change your desires and give you the strength to make the changes.

    Please keep your hands out of the way. Don't try to help me and don't resist me. I really do need your full commitment and co-operation. If you give me those, the process can go smoothly, without delays.

      Yours Sincerely,

        God

John 15:10,14 – If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. You are my friends if you do what I command. (NIV)

Prayer: Father, forgive me for resisting your authority in my life, and for not letting you be my manager all the time. Fill me and control me by your Holy Spirit. Amen.
