PostSubject: God's "Have Nots"   Mon Mar 09, 2015 7:02 pm

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him. It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 1 CORINTHIANS 1:27-30

If you think you are one of the "have nots" of this world, then give glory to God. His followers are made up of those who "have" and "have not" alike. If you feel foolish, weak, insignificant, even despised, take heart. For that is just the way God will use you.

He did not choose the "lowly things" because they were the only things that would have Him. God will work with any kind of lump of clay. In its lack of form or beauty, that lump is made perfect through His artful touch. When you are weak, you actually are strong because of Christ. When you are weak, you don't try to do everything in your own strength, because you humbly realize you don't have any. "God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble." James 4:6

The first grace He gives you is in choosing you. He set His eye on you to follow Him and serve Him, to make disciples and baptize in His name. He chose you to tell others about the good news of salvation in Christ. Glorify Him for the work He does in you, not taking any personal glory for yourself.

INSIGHT: My brothers and sisters; It is good to be weak in yourselves because then you are ready to be used by Almighty God!

Dear Lord, This is a difficult teaching. To be foolish, weak, lowly, humble, even despised...These traits are not what the world thinks are positive or attractive by any means! But You God, have turned the world upside down and I thank you for that! I want to be all of these things for You dear Lord, so I can be "empty of myself"...so I can be Your child that's ready and willing to serve You. I want to be humble dear God so I can be anxious to do Your will. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
