CEC CANADA’s ELDERS AND DEACONS
WORTHY OF THE HIGHEST OF OFFICES
Job Portfolios - CEC Canada’s Officials.

The Elders and Deacons of the Church of God have gained the respect of many, CEC Canada believes it is their tenacious respect and love for God and man that has gained them this respect. CEC Canada believes it is their walk in Christ that has delivered them and brought them forward to the point were they can be relied on to protect and to guide the Body.  With CEC Canada their first responsibility is cast, it is to protect the Body from the influence of the heretical. Their second responsibility also cast, it is to attend to spiritual and physical needs of the Body. This is CEC Canada’s general statement for Elders and Deacons regardless of what positions they may hold with the Association, authoritative or otherwise.
God never leaves his people short of anything they may need to serve him properly, the area of overseeing his work is no different. Every organization that has any knowledge at all, knows full well that without protection and guidance it is subject to be beaten up even disabled by its enemies.  The local church is no different. If the local church does not mind its business properly, it surely is subject to becoming as a lost sheep away from the Church of God. To this end then, God has shown cause for the need of the two most important ministries, these ministries are Boards of Elders and Boards of Deacons both headed by Bishops.  CEC Canada’s designation for them are Boards of Directors and Board of Governors, with Chairman having oversight of them. Their first responsibility is cast, it is to keep the Association on the road that God has chosen for it.
In the world Boards of Directors and Governors often have no personal relationships nor affiliations with the ones they serve, typically it is to  discourage even prevent them from making decisions which may play into their own hands. With the Church of God this is not possible, for all members are baptized into one Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, making them the Body of Christ. The Apostle Paul compares the Body of Christ to human body, each member having its part to play. Elders and Deacons are not the arms and legs of the Body but rather, they are the mind of the Body. Can you comprehend the dramatic responsibility of the Elders and Deacons, and can you see what the dramatic affect the failure of these minds would have? Is it then any wonder that God would have the Apostle Paul write to Timothy these words: 1 Timothy 3: 1. This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desires a good work. 2. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior; given to hospitality, apt to teach. 3. not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
20 .1
4. One that rules well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5. ( For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall be take care of the church of God?)              
6. Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. 8. Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 9. Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 10. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. 11. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. 12. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. 13. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
No elder, deacon, or authoritative leader can expect to deliver according to God’s sovereign will without first knowing two things, the first is God’s counsel, and second is, how he has determined to fulfill his counsel. Knowing these two they can reach up to God for direction, and reach down to give the Body direction.
The Apostle Paul effectively preaches to man’s inheritance, yet when we analysis his work we can readily see he spent all of his time counseling man on what it would take to be worthy of that inheritance. To cover the depth of his service he used these words “ I have not shunned to declare to you all the counsel of God” Acts 20: 27. The Apostle Paul in the truest sense of the word was a man of the Gospel of Christ. By his own admission, he lived by the faith of the Son of God. Galatians 2: 20. Three things that dominated his life in Christ, his person, his labor, and last his behavior, all three stand as examples for us. The fascinating example is his first three years alone with God, this would turn out to be his foundation related to all that would follow, to profit from this we look to the fruit of this time by looking at the grounding of his faith. His statement of faith tells us all where we ought to be. Colossians 2: 20. I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but the life that I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me, 21 Speaking in support of Christ and the righteousness of God he said “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Why pick on the Apostle Paul as an example? He was the most zealous for what he stood and became the most ardent and brazen for what he found to be true.  It is these words of his that tell us where things are at when it comes to finding life in Christ, and he was not ashamed to say so. Romans 1: 16. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17. For therein is the righteousness of God  revealed from faith to faith as it is written, The just shall live be faith.
God has not left us in the dark, regarding his counsel, Isaiah 45: 18. For thus says the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he has established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD: and there is none else.
We live in a time when the earth and all that is in it is in a desperate turmoil, this begs the question, how does God expect this earth to be inhabited and remain inhabited for all of eternity?  Again God has not left us in the dark. The Apostle Peter sheds light on what is in store for this earth, he also sheds light on what God has in store for the man. 2 Peter 3: 10. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13. Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness. This is God’s council brought to fulfillment, a new heavens and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness. The church finds itself between these two scripture passages,  the question is, What is its place in it? for this is what the Board of Directors must know, and this is what they must make known. For the answer we look to the Apostle Paul, for as he was commissioned to go to the Gentiles so CEC Canada has been commissioned to go to the Gentiles to bring them from darkness into light, and from the power of Satan unto God; that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me, Acts 26: 18. The words of Jesus to the Apostle Paul.  What does this entail for CEC Canada? The answer, to raise the young of Canada in all simplicity to becoming instruments of righteousness as such fruit bearing vessels in the hands of Almighty God.
The Board of Directors are not expected to go out, but to make certain that every member knows what God expects of them, to this depth, to the point where every member including those ordained to positions know their responsibilities as related to the work and life of the overall Body.
The Board of Directors are not expected to be fishermen, what they are expected to do is to keep their fingers on the pulse of the spiritual and physical needs of the members and of the community surrounding them, all this to be able to make informed decisions to keep the Association on the path that God has chosen for it.
It goes without saying that the Board of Directors and the Board of Governor cannot perform without each other in the overall process of keeping the Association of the path God has chosen for it.
The Directors cannot overstep the ability of the Association, to avoid this possibility they must turn to the Governors. Governors are those who must keep the Association moving ahead as a Body, less confusion, less conflict in the direction God has chosen for it. Theirs is the balancing act to keep the Association running smoothly and to capacity. Incumbent upon Governors is to know the capacity of the integral parts of the Body both spiritually and physically, for it is these parts that must work as one to keep the Association performing and on track.  Again, the Directors cannot not work without the input of the Governors, nor can the Governors work without the input of the Directors, the Association holds them as one to make thing work, e. g. expansions, assessments must be a joint effort before projects can move ahead.
Regarding life, service, behavior, as Paul, first do so by the faith that is in Christ. Acts 26: 18. Regarding service, be no less ardent and no less brazen. Let all the elders and deacons regardless of the positions be of the same mind. Isaiah 50: 7. For the LORD God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. Ezekiel 3: 9. As an adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead; fear them not, either be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. An elephant has a tough hide, yet it has a very carrying heart. It is indeed a gentle giant.
To the Elders and Deacons who will hold positions, whether at Head Office or in the field, yours shall be positions of authority, as such you are called to be the Electorate, the final voting block on the majority of decisions; see by-law 21: 2. To be effective you shall be the sounding members for the needs of the Association, as such you shall have the obligation to receive from those you serve the issues they deem important and to deliver them to the Governors, whose responsibility it is to see to it that the necessary steps are taken to bring in conclusions regarding the issues presented. e.g. From the bottom up: The workers were told, We depend on you for the success of the company, 2 weeks later, John a worker, not a foreman, came into the office and said, “I believe we can increase your production by 20%, if you allow your crew to do this” The idea was assessed and accepted, within one week the production was increased by 20%, needless to say, much to the joy of everyone.
Directors and Governors are Service Boards to the Association, their power to conclude is limited, theirs is to assess and to convince yea or nay those who may be affected by decisions made. Theirs is to bring the assessments and convincing statements to those having the authority to bring things to a conclusion; e.g. Back to John, a scenario: He turned in his suggestion to the Production Manager, he being under obligation turned in the suggestion to his Authority the President, he being under obligation, turned in the suggestion to the Chairman of both Boards, The two Board made their assessments, and came up with their convincing statement and turned them over to the Electorate for and final conclusion.
It shall be the responsibility of the Board of Directors to inform all those who may be affected by the decisions that have come down, the path, to deliver them to the President who is under obligation to inform all those affected which can include the world outside of the Body. e.g. All around approval has been received to built a new school in your community. Construction will begin in the fall.   The responsibility of having effective Boards is left up to the Chairman of each Board.
Note: The first people who will be called to join CEC Canada will be the Directors and Governors of the Association, the Provincial Directors and Governors as counterparts will be installed as and when CEC Canada sees need of them. The flow of information from the provinces regarding suggestions will first be dealt with by them, and then sent off to the Directors and Governors at Head Office for their involvement in the process.
God has established parameters for all of creation, he most definitely has for the new man in Christ, the parameters he has given to him far exceed the parameters he had before he became a new creation in Christ, God is love, the love of God which has no bounds has become the parameter for the new man, as God loves so his man loves, his performance begins with loving God with all of his heart, mind, soul, and strength, and his neighbor as himself, God has crowned him with his lovingkindness and mercy. Psalm 103: 4. It is this lovingkindness and mercy, the nature of the new man that compels him to love his neighbor. The love of God has no barriers, as a result his people can reach down to those in darkness, regardless of how dark or hopeless it may be. Darkness cannot comprehend light, so hate cannot comprehend love, love is stronger then death, it is this that makes it possible for man to come through for God.  It is this agape love which God has in his man and flowing through him which makes it possible for God to use him in positions of authority. It is the Love of God, that works the Faith of Christ, it is the Faith of Christ that works the Righteousness of God, and it is the Righteousness of God that delivers from death. Within the Body God’s agape love works to maintains the unity and fluency of the spirits of man, (outside of the Body it delivers from death the spiritually dead.) The unity of the spirit of man is being in agreement, but how can they be in agreement unless they know how the entire Body works.  To this end CEC Canada puts the responsibility on the Board of Directors and Governors to make and maintain knowable Job Portfolios, firstly for the holder to know his or her duties and responsibilities, and secondly to give
every member insight into what God expects from the other holders, making it possible to fully respect and to work together with the rest of the Body and that without interference, that is to say, in the unity and love of the Spirit.
Every Portfolio holder must know what the parameters of a portfolio are, this before they are allowed to step into a portfolio. The first step in the orientation and training of a newcomer shall be that of identifying these parameters, it is working inward from the outer edge, what goes on within those parameters is another thing, it is like an empty pocket, by the time you have learned all, you will be going out with all the answers you will need, full pockets. Beware sharp objects can cut holes in your pockets. The work shall fall upon the Directors and Governors, more specifically upon the teachers that represent them.
After a Portfolio has be handed to someone it is incumbent upon all to respect the parameters that go with it. Are there limitations? Yes, The things that God does not want is for a holder to step outside of the parameters and or bounds which have been established. Failing to do so can be blamed on two points, the first the holder of the Portfolio was not fully made aware of his or her responsibilities, and secondly failure to carry out known responsibilities. The first calls for the Board of Directors and Board of Governors to review their work, and then to take the necessary measures to make the necessary correction so to prevent future failures, the second calls for the Board of Directors and Board of Governors is to review their work, and look for possible shortages on their part that could have prevented such failure, pending on their findings, to determine the necessary steps to take to prevent such and others that might follow from bringing shame upon the Body. For procedures to dismiss members in trespass see By-law 13: 1, 2, to see causes for dismissal of officers see By-law 15: 1, 2, for voting procedures see By-law 21: 2.
Who writes the Portfolios for the Directors and Governors? There are at least four scenarios;
The first scenario is were the Visionary writes them and then explains them, so that they, the Directors and Governors can see the same picture the Visionary sees.
The second scenario is were the Directors and Governors write them with the help of the Visionary, it is best that this be done before the registration of a society.
The third scenario is were a change of leadership is to take place, it is best that this be done with the help of the existing work force, authoritative leadership, managers, and ministers, before new leadership is brought in.
The fourth scenario is were Portfolios exist they must be brought in line with the God’s original vision for the organization. It is not likely that God will change his Vision for CEC Canada, his vision for all of the Body is fixed, that is to join Christ in his work to seek and to save the lost,  what can change is approaches and methods even places to get things done, these are no more then walking and seeing together with Christ to get things done, for he always does the will of his Father. Are these visions? What they should be is the opening of our eyes to see together with Christ the will of the Father, purely and simply so that we can agree with him and comfortably give ourselves to co-work with him in the will of his Father, this is living by the Faith that is in Christ. Should Portfolios be altered when this happens? When approaches and methods are in need of change, Absolutely, Portfolios must reflect and deliver according to the will of God.
There are visions beyond the Vision that God has for mankind, the new heavens and the new earth wherein there dwells righteousness, be warned unless they clearly fall in line with the vision of God they have come to destroy God’s work. Many a novice has begged for a vision, only to find out that the vision came from the Satan who transforms himself into an angel of light. The right way to ask for vision, not a vision, is to ask God the Father to open your eyes so that you can see together with Christ, having done so and received sight, join Christ and co-work with him, for he always does the will of the Father, this then is the yoke of Christ that he has asked us to put on, he followed it up by saying, “And learn of me” To all, it is when we do this that we get to know what God wants us to know, in simplicity it is Him and his plans for us, both for now and for all of eternity.
Portfolios to be written and maintained by the Board of Directors with the help of the Board of Governors, and position holders: Although CEC Canada has established the basics for Directors and Governors it is their responsibility to come up with and maintain their own Portfolio, one - for their own use, two -  for those that may join them, three - for those that may follow them. Granted these Portfolios and all other Portfolios would have to be approved of by the Electorate. This then brings us to this question, How detailed should Portfolios be? CEC Canada’s answer is, foundationally they should be limited to routines. Anything beyond the routines can interfere with the operation of the Portfolio. Routines can be an arsenal, the best example we have is that of an evangelist, he uses the word of God, if one word does not turn a man another one could very well and often does. His continuous use of entire word of God has become routine for him, it is an arsenal beyond compare. The last thing he or she needs to hear is this, “You should have said this” At best this questioning God.  Like walking, God has given to the evangelist the ability to use God’s word, as though he walk. The routines whether they be arsenals or not must deliver the end result.
What are the routines that God commands? Members of the Body of Christ are called to love him, to love one another, to comfort one another, to help one another, to build up one another, and to labor as one for the cause of Christ, to the glory of God the Father.  God says if we love one another we have fulfilled the law of God. If we interrupt the life of Christ in us, we are interrupting his routines which are buried in his faith, the faith by which we are called to live by and serve in. “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him. Colossians 2: 6. It is the continuous obedience to this commandment that will make the routines of Christ become yours, and make you a fruit bearing vessel as he is for his Father. We shall be like him when we shall see him. 1 John 3: 2.
From here we move to the operational and technical sides of the CEC Canada Foundation Association. Every Portfolio has with it responsibilities and duties. Both can be set up as routine, but never so tight as to be inflexible, for this too could cripple the Portfolio. The worse of inflexibility that can happen to a Portfolio holder is to give him his or her responsibilities and duties and then to dictate his or her every move, this is not authorizing, neither is it giving full managerial or ministerial status, it is tying the holders hands behind his or her back. This type of behavior has its roots in the lack of knowledge on the part of the authority. More good men and women have been destroyed through this kind of behavior, the same can be said about those that do not give enough and or appropriate instruction to those that need it. The authority must bear its burdens, it is knowledge and the willingness to obey it that will every time lighten ones burdens,  it to is what will lighten the burdens of the others, knowledge and obedience to it is what will eradicate this type of behavior. How does one deal with those that give themselves to such behavior? The first question is, Was he properly assessed regarding his character, education, skill, and experience? If yes, Was he exposed to CEC Canada’s rigorous orientation and training exercises? If yes, we narrow it down to this, Was the issue behind the problem ever discussed before he was released into the chain of command? If yes, release the authority. If no, why not, was the Association behind the destruction of these two men, was it due to flaws in CEC Canada’s orientation and training exercises? These are major reasons why Directors and Governors have to know the whole picture and what it takes to bring this picture into a living and fruit bearing reality. Again, this is why the Directors and Governors are involved in the writing and maintaining of Job Portfolios as well in the teaching of leadership, managers and ministers what is expected of them.
No one can force a man to resign if he puts his heels up against it, what then? There is such a thing as professional firing, it goes this way, Sorry, we made a mistake in hiring you, we did not do our job, you have now proven to us that you are not suited for this job, we have no option but to let you go, what we owe you will be in the mail tomorrow. In this cruel world this can cost money, but wise leaders will bit the bullet both for the sake of the organization and surely for the one released so he can find a job that is suited for him. In the Body of Christ for the sake of unity, it is always best to admit one anothers shortfalls and to talk it out and to come into an agreement that the thing to do is to resign and to find a position more suitable, in the case of CEC Canada, if at all possible with CEC Canada.
Adam and Eve were the first ever to be fired, what followed was a system that would not fail. God came up with his own sinless life to be put into man. God did not reverse his decision regarding the release of Adam, the most important is God did not destroy him. God is a God of opportunity, what then should we be? Be careful that we do not destroy those who fail but rather encourage them even help them to find what God may have for them. If at all with CEC Canada.
As there is a place for every member of the Body, there is also functions for each member, this then makes it necessary that they know their gifts, callings, and parameters. A blanket that covers all members is important, this blanket must be God’s blanket, e.g. do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
By-law 51 reads: Responsibilities - The Membership, to know the Vision and Agenda of God for the Association, to ensure that the will of God handed down by its Leadership is carried out. Expressly to love God, to love one another, to edify one another, and to take part in the building of the Church. This is a blanket cover for the Membership of the Association. Question, Can it be enforced? The answer is no. Can it happen? The answer is yes. Every true child of God, deep in their hearts want to please God, this is the nature of the new man, the question is how can they please God without first being taught, to this end it will be the responsibility of the Directors to see to it that this is taken in hand, and that the appropriate educational programmes are introduced into CEC Canada’s educational system, beginning with the kindergarten. See - CEC Canada on Education.

There are a total of 88 titles involved in this exercise. These do not include Portfolios for the Private Secretary. The varying responsibilities and duties that these Secretaries can have demands that they have their own Job Descriptions as part of their over all Portfolio. Again it shall be the responsibility of the Directors with the help of the Governors and Position Holder to write them.
Profolio guidelines for all of CEC Canada’s Private Secretaries:
Character and Abilities and Behavior.
1. Secretaries must be able to show themselves to be strong in the Lord.
2. They must understand the character, education, expertise and varied experiences the Portfolio of their Authority demands. They must be in agreement with their Authority and think alike.
3. They must understand the Portfolio of their Authority, and to what extend they may be allowed to exercise their expertise on behalf of the Authority.
4. They must be able to speak for their Authority as though they be the Authority.
5. They must be keepers of secrets as those that do keep secrets.
6. They must be true confidants, and trustworthy in all matters.
7. All said and done, when an Authority fails the first answer is, they have an obligation to be obedient to God and to give constructive criticism with the hope that they will receive it, if they refuse correction, they must stand with their first love, that is Christ, and call upon the Father to protect his word and work and to depend upon him that he will take care of it. Be warned, this not a time to resign, perchance God has come to use you to screen out those who reject his ways even his Authority, these are those that have crept in. As hard as it may be, and as costly it may be, it is at such a time when one must obey God rather then man.  When God puts his feet down he often uses those closest to the problem to bring closure to the problem, what God has done by doing this is counted us worthy to suffer for him, for this we are called to be thankful. (Humble servants of God receive constructive criticism with appreciation and thanks, they also know how to give criticism that will save.)
8. When they see themselves as falling short of what is demanded of them, they should own up to it and resign and avoid the embarrassment of being let go for incompetence.
Portfolio guidelines for all of CEC Canada’s Private Secretaries:
Education and Experience.
Education: It is not expected that a Secretary has attended a Christian School, What is expected is that Secretaries are born again and have a reasonable history of walking with the Lord. Secondly, that they have successfully graduated from a High School. and last that they have a diploma from a reputable school showing themselves to be fully qualified secretaries, and last that they have the experience that allows them to step into a new Portfolio with confidence knowing that they will be able to deliver what is expected of them.
Writing a Job Portfolio:
Thoughts:
What about those who come to serve God as, gardeners, janitors, or maintenance people, do these have need of portfolios?  Based on this fact that God may move these people into more responsible positions it is important that they too know how God gets things done, rather then a here is the job you do it and then forget about them. All to often it is neglect that drives them to spend their time elsewhere, this should not happen.
Giving time to details is important, the man that gives out food to the poor as a volunteer could turn out to be an authority figure, never under estimate God. Don’t forget the man with the sling. The importance of equal treatment and proper treatment is vitally important, not only for the person involved but also for the Association. Lets put this ship called CEC Canada together properly and ensure that these and those in between them and the managers, ministers and the authoritative figures are treated with the same brush regardless of how simple the tasks may be.
The Portfolio and what they should have in them: First criteria, there is a great deal of similarities within the portfolios of those in authoritative positions, nevertheless they must be put together in the light that they are being exercised. Second criteria, the moment we come to carrying out directives things become diversified, it takes different people as managers and ministers with different characters, education, coping skills and experience to make it possible for the association to come through for God, this then calls for portfolios that will reflect the same. Can the same pattern be used? The answer is, Yes.
The first items on the Portfolio is CEC Canada’s Agenda and Mandate.
It is to let prospects know what they are committing to.
God’s agenda for CEC Canada:
To bring CEC Canada Schools and Churches into being across the Nation. The purpose, to help the Saints of God to acquire an in depth knowledge of God, and of His Counsel. Furthermore, to help in the equipping of the Saints of God for the work called for by His Counsel, namely the building and edifying of the Church, the Body of Christ.
God’s mandate for the association:
To engage students in the study of the Gospel of God, that is, a doctrine which is good for this life and the life to come, and to engage students in the studies of the sciences and services required by those who want to live their lives in dedication to the survival and well being of humanity.
The second item on the Portfolio list is the Job Description, here we use the President’s Portfolio as a sample.

8. The Renumerations and Benefits that go with the position. CEC Canada’s policy first and foremost is that all who come to work shall do so under the instructions of God, that is, do not muzzle the ox that threads to corn, and secondly, those who insist on working as volunteers will be received, provided they can meet the standards God has set for the Association, bottom line the expenses of volunteers are to be paid. 1 Corinthians Chapter 9.
Renumerations shall be set to meet the basic needs of breadwinners, they are to include their spouses, children, and school children up to and including grade twelve, secondly Renumerations shall be set to meet within reason for the same the comfort levels being experienced in the community in which they live.

He is a man that has learned not to allow anything to come between God’s love for him nor between God and his people, neither has he allowed anything to come between himself and his love for God, instead he has confirmed his oneness with Him and his Son for ever never to be separated. He does not frustrate the grace of God. His major mark is godliness with contentment, his allies are patience, perseverance, and persistence. He has become one with God and as such a Defender of the Faith and Life of Christ. This man rests in God, he is merry, his heart is on a continual feast on the goodness of God, his hope is in the promises of God, the joy of the Lord is his comfort. From here springs the eloquence of such a man, he truly is the one that can freely boast that he knows God, yet does not. He sees the world as a table of God’s unfinished work, he is not stressed, but rather  he prays for wisdom and says to God what would you want me to do. Such is the man that can be trusted to come through for God, such are the men whom God will gift and ordain to take charge of his business.
11. The Christian maturity required to qualify for the position. Maturity is not related to knowledge, but rather to the application of ones knowledge, with the Christian this can only happen in the walk that God has for him in Christ.

Such is the man that can be trusted to come through for God, such are the men whom God will gift and ordain to take charge of his business.
11. The Christian maturity required to qualify for the position. Maturity is not related to knowledge, but rather to the application of ones knowledge, with the Christian this can only happen in the walk that God has for him in Christ. Christ said, Put on my yoke and learn of me. These words received, the yoke put on, and the appropriate amount of time spent with Christ is what will bring this man to the point were he will have reached a measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, enough to make him fit for the Master’s use and so ready to be released and ordained to take on the position God has for him.
