GUEST POST BY CHRISTIAN LARRY KWE
26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus,h who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast1 Corinthians 1:26–31
My take on this is that God is sovereign. He knows what He is doing.
He may choose someone far from what our standards may require.
The bottom line is that He can use Whom He wants to use.
If you think that God cannot use someone because he/she is soiled, I want to remind you of all our bible heroes!
Abraham? David? And the one who wrote the text that I just shared, Paul, considered himself the worst of all sinners!
God can use the foolish things in this world to shame those who claim to be wise!
He can use the soiled of all soiled persons to shame those who are sanctimonious!
So my brothers and sisters, do not insult God by belittling others!
- Didn’t the bible teach us to love one another?
- Didn’t the bible teach us to love the unlovable?
- Didn’t the bible teach us to consider others better than ourselves?
- Didn’t the bible teach us to submit to the governing authorities because He placed them there?
Furthermore, let us not become prophets who are prophesying the downfall of a person or a nation!
Friends, let us move on.
Let us continue to love one another, for, by our love, they will know that we are His!
Do not listen to people who are sowing and cultivating hate. Do not listen to people who are choreographing evil.
Let us love one another, for God is love! ❤️🙏
