Who does God use? Well, surly God uses the perfect. Or the wise. Or the sinless. Or those that haven’t made mistakes. Or those that are prominent. Or powerful. Or wealthy. Or famous.
God would have no need for the imperfect, we think. He would have no need for the small, or the frail. Or the ones that are looked down upon. Or just can’t get it right. Right?
Who does God use? Listen to what Peter says today in Acts 2: 17-18:
“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
Who does God use? Everybody! We see here, Peter preaching on Pentecost, when the Spirit falls down and the church begins, we see that God uses everyone. He uses our sons and our daughters, young men and old men. Male and female servants.
Everyone you. Young and old. Rich and poor. Famous or infamous. God uses everybody. There’s not a soul out there that God can’t use for His purpose and for His glory.
Who does God use? He uses me. He uses you. He uses each of us. No matter where we are; what we are doing, no matter what has happened.
Today. Where you are. In your place. God wants to use you.
I said yesterday at Asbury in my message that ministry is not just preaching. We’ve made the ministry something reserved for just preachers. No, we are all called to ministry. If you are baptized believer, than you have a calling on your life for something for God.
Who does God use? He uses me. He uses you. He uses all of us. May we be faithful, in all that we do! And may we live in the power of His grace today!
