1 Corinthians 1:27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.
Regardless of how imperfect we may be, God does not call the qualified; God qualifies those who are called. When Jesus calls his disciples, some cannot stay awake as Jesus prays, and others argue over who will be the greatest. With this band of misfit disciples, Christ builds his church. As we continue this work as Jesus’ disciples, we too can be used—even with all of our flaws and limitations—to the glory of God and for the love of God’s people. Thanks be to God.
