THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: COMMON PEOPLE THAT CHANGE THE WORLD. That’s what we are and that’s what God has determined for us. No superstars, no high-fliers, not the talented or the elite but common ordinary people like us. [1 Corinthians 1:26-29] “For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 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; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.” I’ll gladly take my place with the ‘foolish things of the world’ if it means I can be useful to God. That’s what it’s all about anyway. We’re not trying to gain notoriety, nor fame, nor the fortunes of this world. Our highest goal is to be pleasing to God and if we can be useful to Him in the accomplishing of His will on earth, that would be the height of honor. Together, the church, filled and empowered with the Holy Spirit can have impact way beyond our wildest expectation. There is no limit to what God can do through COMMON ORDINARY PEOPLE LIKE US. Let’s determine today to make every day count for God and be instruments in His hands to CHANGE THE WORLD!
