It really is humbling to review the applications and essays of the pastoral candidates. These men have been called by God to shepherd His flock in a local body. And here I am critiquing their essays to get a glimpse of who they are, their passion, vision, strengths, weaknesses and so forth all in an effort to discern who’s the one that God is calling to Pinelands. The task is daunting. These men are godly, articulate, well-educated, highly qualified, passionate servants of God. The Pastoral Search Committee is prayerfully considering the cream of the crop for Pinelands.

Their applications beg questions of me…Olga, what would your “application” reveal of your call, walk, relationship with God? Yes, it’s humbling to review their applications, but having to consider my own is convicting. Immediately I’m bombarded by my overactive conscience: How have you spent your years as a Christian? What have you done for the Kingdom? How are you after all these years in sharing the gospel? Have you served the Lord joyfully? Are you serving out of love, obedience, pride? Why don’t you do more? So, before I end up in therapy to answer these questions and oh so many others– I sit before the Lord and say, “Here I am, Lord, use me as You see fit”.

So, as we await with eager anticipation the man God has called to Pinelands, let’s prayerfully consider our “application”. Will we ask the Lord to show us where we can use our gifts and talents for His Kingdom? How will we come alongside our new pastor and encourage him in his call to Pinelands? When he asks us to serve, will we respond with a joyful, yes? Will we pursue excellence in service for God’s glory? Oh, Pinelands, may the Lord be blessed by our desire to serve Him wholeheartedly and without reservation.
