I Corinthians 1:26-30 NKJV
26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.
27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,
29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.
30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
You remember when God chose Moses to lead His people out of the captive, Moses was nobody, He sees himself as unworthy (he murdered an Egyptian) of the task and he tried to weave the task by reminding God that he stutters. But we all know that this same Moses who ran from Egypt as a murderer became a great leader and he saw God face to face and He was even buried by God himself.
The call of prophet Jeremiah followed the same suit. When he was called, Jeremiah was trying to weave the task as a mouthpiece of God. He knows the people God want him to deal with. They are older and more knowledgeable than him, how can he convince them? He tried remind God that he is a very young boy and he does not know how to speak...God sanctified him and touched his lips then Jeremiah became one of the greatest prophet who speaks for God throughout his life (Jeremiah 1:4-10)
You do not have to be skilled my brethren. You do not have to look down on yourself and think to yourself that you cannot preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Verse 27 and 28 of 1 Corinthians reminds us that not matter how weak we are spiritually God can use us even more than he can use the people who are spiritually stronger than us.
My message here is to encourage us to submit ourselves to be used by the Almighty. If God used Moses, if God used Paul, who was destroying the work of God by killing Christians to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and win souls for the Kingdom, then You and I can also be used.
Our kind and Everlasting Father, we thank You for the opportunity You gave us this day to know that You can use us to do mighty things.
We know We are weak but You are strong, we humble ourselves before You this day, we submit ourselves to You this day to be used for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We pray that You come upon us and become our wisdom and we pray that You touch our lips and fill it with your word.
We Love You Lord, We believe You have answered this prayers.
In Jesus Name we pray
