OK. I admit it. I couldn't think of a better title for this sermon than John MacArthur's "Twelve Ordinary Men" on Mark 3:13-19, but I am going for the "average" over the "ordinary".

In this sermon, I try to emphasize what qualifies men for leadership from this text. The things that are emphasized here are very much neglected by many pastoral search committees and local churches as a whole. When was the last time you heard of a committee emphasizing the candidate's personal time with Christ? Or when did you last hear of a church engaging in serious prayer over their selection of a pastor, so much so that they did a corporate fast over it (cf. Acts 13:1-4)? Have you ever heard of a committee that demanded that the candidate exhibit the ability to perform the Biblical meaning of the word "preach" rather than the traditional one (which is "teaching" technically)? If a man is called to preach, he doesn't wait for a church appointment--he simply "heralds the gospel in the public square" which IS the definition of the term.

Don't miss the fact that Jesus calls "those whom He desired". There is great depth in this phrase, great truth reflected. Those He desired did not deserve the call. Compare that with Ephesians 1:4-6 and we discover that the call is based on God's gracious love.

There is a warning here with Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed Jesus. Like the disciples when they were confronted with the idea of a traitor in their midst, we must ask, "Is it I?". This is enough to keep us humble when we think of ourselves more highly than we ought to think. It is also enough for us to seek Biblical repentance whenever we sin and keep "short accounts" of sin with God.
