The Project Management Book of Knowledge describes the role of a project manager to be as follows: “A project manager is the person who keeps all the elements of a project together. He is the “man in charge” of the project and must take responsibility as the project leader, working often within the constraints of scope, time and cost.”
In God’s project of reconciling man with God, Jesus Christ is the “man in charge”. He kept the elements of God’s Salvation project together and as the project leader, worked within the elements of scope (reconciliation of all mankind unto God; 2 Peter 3:9), time (when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth Jesus, his Son to be born of a woman to redeem and Save all mankind who were under the law; Galatians 4:4-5) and cost (willingly laying down his very own life; John 10:18). Jesus Christ is The Project Manager.
Points to ponder:
Are you in God’s project of being reconciled unto him under Jesus Christ, the “man in charge”? If so, you can be guaranteed of success, because Jesus The Project Manager always delivers when “God’s” time comes, within “God’s” scope and has paid the cost.
John 10:15-18 (KJV)
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
