The Master at Using the Unlikely

“Think about the Christians you know; think about yourself; and you will remember that God is a master at using the unlikely.  We serve the God who calls old men to father many nations and lead revolutions, young men to fight experienced warriors and to tell off kings to their faces.  We serve the God who chose to bring his Son into the world through a young virgin.  He called tax collectors for Rome to be friends with Israel’s Messiah, and a middle-aged academic bigot to take the gospel to the Gentiles.  He can use you and me.  We are well within the scope of his sovereign ability to use us for his glory.”

(Mark Dever, The Message of Philippians)
