Resume For Success Wanted In Life
Sometimes we may think that we have a good resume in our qualifications for success in this life. We base this upon our self efforts and righteous merits. In our resume we would include the normal resume glitter that the world includes and tell how good we are at deserving what we are applying for. This makes sense with human reasoning, but God’s way of giving us success in life isn’t based on our merits but on His grace and our faith in His grace thru Jesus.
The resume for success in Jesus may include something along this line:
- Decide what type of Resume you want, capabilities, history of success.
- Create Career Objective and your desires that you enjoy.
- List your experience and skills
- List your education and background for your qualifications
- List your activities and qualifications, leadership positions in the field you are pursuing.
Resume for Success Using Self Merits & Righteous Virtues
Applicant One from Mount Sinai:
I am applying for success in life because I deserve a chance at it. I have been a relatively good person and I have had a history of being polite and considerate. My objective is to have fun and enjoy life; I go fishing, hunting, boating, snow skiing. My parents were good parents and I am a good parent and I love my kids. I have worked hard in life with education, exercise and always diet properly. I am a leader in my church, I believe in God and I think He will bless me with this position of good success in life because I am working hard at deserving it.
Resume for Success Based On Dependance On God’s Grace
Applicant Two from Mount Zion:
I am applying for success in life based on no qualifications of my own, and I don’t deserve anything on my merits other than based on what God has said about me in Jesus. I want to enjoy this success, but previously had worry’s about sins I committed, which were really bad. Now I see I am sin free because Jesus washed them away and He qualifies me in His righteousness. My objectives are to have fun, and from what I see in God’s word, joy is mine to have! I can go fishing, hunting, boating skiing or anything else I want to do with the blessings of God protecting me and guiding me. I don’t have a lot of experience and skills where success is concerned, but Jesus has told me He would give me His Knowledge and Wisdom for success, this has equipped me for every good work and made me qualified in Him. My background in success has not been something I can brag about, but Jesus has given me His background as if it was my own. He has successfully secured all authority in Heaven and Earth and given me all that I would need to make me qualified where education and background are concerned. I am not a leader in my church, I sit on the back row, but Jesus has said the last shall be first so you can expect to see me excel in a leadership position in Him.
