You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.” 1 Corinthians 1:27

Yesterday I was called to preach in a small village church. God gave me a promise to speak to that people and so I happily went to share God’s word. There I met the elder of the church and the pastor.

The pastor conducted the worship and then he asked the elder to read out a chapter from Psalms and also asked him to share a thought from that. The elder started to read a particular chapter and as I watched him, I noticed that he made so many mistakes while reading. 

He struggled a lot to read that chapter and I was thinking like what he is doing. Once he finished reading, he started to share a thought from that particular chapter. As he begun to share God’s word from that passage, a lady who was sitting in the front begun to weep. Whatever he shared was a short abstract of the message that God has asked me to share with them and I could feel the power of God’s Spirit flowing through him in such a way that it touched the heart of that woman and she begun to cry. I could understand that God spoke to her through him. 

When I was returning back, I was thinking how God can use such a man who can’t even read a verse properly. The answer I got was: It’s impossible with men but it’s possible with God. 

God can use a nobody to bring glory to His name. He doesn’t need a qualified or a well studious person to share His word or to do His work. Bible says that God has chosen the foolish and weak things of the world to put to shame the wise and the mighty.

God chooses the despised ones to bring glory to His name. The disciples of Jesus Christ were not qualified people but yet God called them and He made them qualified and did mighty things through them. 

My dear young friends, you might be despised by many. You might feel like you are a foolish man or foolish woman. You might feel like you are weak. Do not get discouraged. God has chosen you and He will do mighty things through you. Just surrender yourself to God and yield to His will. He will take you in His hands and will glorify His name through you. Many people and nations will receive God’s blessing through you.

“...Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.” – Zechariah 4:6
