He took…

22 Aug

a murderer and turned him into a missionary.

He took a man with a stuttering tongue and used him to lead His chosen people for forty years.

He took a young Jewish orphan and made her a queen.

He took a woman from a heathen nation of Moab, gave her a husband named Boaz and a place in the lineage of Christ.

He took an common fisherman from Galilee and placed him in a pulpit on Pentecost.

He took a woman from hopeless and defeated to helped and delivered when He healed a disease she’d been suffering from for twelve years.

He took a crazed maniac from among the tombs in Gadarra and gave peace to his heart once possessed by demons.

He took an old thief deserving of the cross he hung upon and welcomed him to Paradise.

He took one who had sought satisfaction in one relationship after another and quenched her thirst with the Water of Life.

He took a young boy from slavery and used him to save a nation from starvation.

He took a woman with a barren womb and gave her a son though her childbearing years had long passed.

He took the youngest son of Jesse from his place in the field and placed him in a palace as a King.

He took a woman caught in the very sin which condemned her to death under the law and showed her how amazing grace could be.

He has a way of taking the broken and making them beautiful.

Of taking the useless and giving them purpose.

Of taking sinners and giving them salvation.

“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.”

1 Corinthians 1:27-29

He takes the least that we may see how Great He truly is.

That we might seek to glorify One.

 “That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”

 1 Corinthians 1:31
