God Uses Ordinary People

At times, a person may think they are not prestigious enough or intelligent enough for God to use them. But that is not true. God has always used ordinary people.
A perfect example of this is Jesus twelve disciples. In Mark 3, Jesus chose the twelve disciples. These guys were not from elite families. They were common men, just like most of us.
These men were from rural areas, farmers, and fisherman. Jesus passed over the elite, aristocratic and influential men of society and chose common people.
God has always used every day people. Mary and Joseph were just common people yet, God used them.
The Shepherds were the first to hear of the birth of Jesus. They were common every day people. They were like most of us.
So, if you think God can’t use you.. you are too ordinary… you are wrong; God can use you regardless of your background.
The prophet Amos said, “I am not a prophet nor the son of a prophet but a herdsman and gatherer of sycamore figs…” (Amos 7:14). That’s my story as well and it very well maybe yours. God uses ordinary people… like us.
