“My parents got a new pastor from Venezuela. They're at a church plant and he's technically hired as a Bible worker while he works full time in roofing. He came to the US because of the political chaos in his home country. For about half a year he's been working to bring his family to Minnesota, where he is. Finally this week, his wife and kids were scheduled to fly to Minnesota to live with him. However, he has no credit and hasn't been able to get an apartment.
So my dad has worked for an apartment company for two decades and talked with his manager to see if they would rent out an apartment to the pastor where my parents live and where my dad works. No go. The manager says he has to talk with the supervisor. The supervisor sends him to the regional manager. My dad keeps getting sent up the ladder to where he has to send a message to the owner of the multi-million dollar company. They said, ‘Because we know you, your work, and trust you, we’ll let this guy and his family rent from us for 14 months to build their credit.’ Boom. They’re in! They move in next week!
Y’all, this is the gospel! We have zero credit on our own but Jesus has a long work history, and a flawless one at that! He says to the Father, ‘Look at my record.’ The Father sees the credit of Jesus and says, ‘I have a room ready for you.’”
