God uses the Unlikely
Do we think that God only uses the physically attractive, winsome, popular, well-spoken people to do his work? When we see the imperfections, struggles, and limitations in our lives, we may get caught up in believing in the lie that God could never use us. However, as we see in Judges 3:7-31, and the rest of the book of Judges, God uses the unlikely to do his work. He uses the young who are often disrespected, the weak who seem incapable, and the simple who do not have the highly complicated knowledge or technology. All of these unlikely rescuers such as Othniel, Ehud, and Shamgar, pointed to the ultimate unlikely rescuer Jesus. Despite being sinless, not using deception, and not needing assistance, he was an outsider. “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” (John 1:46) What we read in Isaiah 53 shows us how our Savior did not fit the profile of the rescuer of all of God’s people. Nevertheless, this unlikely story of salvation through the birth, dead, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is what we know as the Gosepl. You can hear this message by Pastor Mike on Judges 3:7-21 continuing with our sermon series Darkness & Light. HERE. The unlikely savior uses unlikely people to do unlikely things so that he may receive all the glory and we may get the joy. How is he using you today?
