1 Corinthians 1:28-29 God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, so that no one might boast in the presence of God.
The first Christians harnessed the energy of those whom we neglect. They recognized the overlooked and overwhelmed people—slaves, women, poor people, despised outsiders—as brothers and sisters and gave them a chance to use their talents in the name of God. Together, they built a church. Imagine what we could do as a culture if we allowed the spirit of God to move through us today the way it did then.
