Jesus The Headhunter
Luke 5:8 “Then Jesus said to Simon, ‘don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.’” Almost 20 years ago, my aunt and I were having lunch at her house on my visit back to the Boston area. She and my uncle had made the transition from being professionals to launching a successful business. So after serving the food and saying grace, she asked me, “Yohan, what do you think is the most important thing in business?” I thought about it for a second and replied “well I guess money is important. But really that’s just a way to keep score. I think the most important thing in business is people. Without good people, you can’t do anything.” Many years later, I now know that the same is true for ministry and the non-profit world. We’re presently recruiting at Amasia for a number of different roles, and today I feel God reminding me that I already have the best business partner anyone could ask for… Him! Jesus walked the earth and upon uttering a few words “come, follow me,” masses of people (starting with the disciples) would drop their careers and abandon their families to join his cause. He was the ultimate recruiter, and when we align ourselves with him, his power lives in us too. Lord, thank you for headhunting me into your org. Thank you for trusting me with the keys to the kingdom so much that you’d empower me to do the same for others. I do not take that responsibility lightly and commit to doing my best at it today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
