God Loves To Use Ordinary People

Dwight Moody was a simple ordinary man. As a young man he sold shoes to make a living. He was not your idea of someone that God could use to reach many many people for Christ. And he was not formally trained or educated to be the evangelist that God called him to be. But Mr. Moody was a man totally committed and surrendered to God, and as a result God was able to use him in great ways. God's hand was on him in a special way. There are many other examples of plain ordinary people that God has used in great ways ... Billy Graham is the son of a farmer ... Jesus' disciples were fishermen, a tax collector,... King David was the "runt" of his family ... God loves to use ordinary people to do extraordinary things, because everyone knows that it was God that did the great work. And God receives all of the glory, which He is worthy to receive. Can God use you to do great things ? Absolutely, if you are willing to sacrifice yourself and be fully committed & surrendered to Him. "I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. And he will do even greater things than these..." - John 14:12-13
