Do you need to be godly to be used by God?

No.

Why?

Because God established the government in each country and not all of them are godly.
He uses each government, good or bad, to accomplish His plans.

Because God established imperfect people to be our earthly spiritual leaders.
The Pharisees and Saducees were groups of self-centred people. Yet Jesus told the people to obey these “spiritual leaders”. These “spiritual leaders” helped to lead Christ to the Cross.

Because God allowed black sheep to preach the gospel… those who sought to get Paul into more trouble by preaching what Paul preached. And through these wolves, many heard and were saved.

Thank God for those who oversee us.
Pray continually for them that His kingdom come, His will be done.
Do not exasperate those who have to give an account to God.
Make their burden light and their work a joy.
