Are You Weak Enough for God’s Mission

A thought ran across my mind as I was preparing for Easter season, that God is not calling us to be strong in our own minds. Strong people tend to boast about their capabilities and their accomplishments. I imagine they hold their trophies up to God and say something like, “God, you really need me on your team because look at what I have accomplished on my own! You need me because I am a great starter and finisher type person that allows you to sit and rest on the sidelines and watch me in action! All my peers marvel at my speed. They must think that I am gifted and should be on the ‘Marvel Team.’ I read about people with less skills than me who are discovered and off to the bank they go, so it’s just a matter of time before I’m discovered.”

Does that sound like anybody you may know? When I am in the company of egotistical people I think to myself, “When did God die and leave you in charge?” Let’s go to HIS Word: “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. He 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. Therefore, as it is written: ‘Let him who boasts boast in the Lord’” (1 Cor 1:27-31 NIV).

God intentionally chooses what the world considers foolish and weak to confound the wise. He uses the insignificant to accomplish His purposes, so that no one can boast before Him. Are you weak enough to be used by God for His mission?
