Real Expertise

Reading Mark (and Wild at Heart and probably dozens of other sources) one is reminded that Jesus didn’t often do things the same way twice. He healed several blind men, but used different methods. He fed thousands of people with just a few pieces of food, but once again the circumstances and results were different. He cast demons out, healed many sick, raised the dead, and taught people about the kingdom but he always did these things in different ways.

God does not push one methodology. His consistent practice is to do amazing things through ordinary people, but always in new and varieties of ways. This makes expertise in kingdom accomplishments difficult. It is hard to really say that God will grant success if certain methods are followed when God does not work that way.

As a wise man told me, we need to work at being experts in obedience. We need to watch and be sensitive to see what God is doing and what He wants us to do. In God’s economy, it is not so much methodology as it is submission.
