I think there are times we read about characters in the Bible, and we tend to view them as superheroes. We look at all the mighty things they did for God and wonder if we could ever be like them. But the men and women of the Bible were just like you and me...normal everyday people who chose to allow God to use their lives. Think about a few with me…

  • Matthew, a government employee who became an apostle
  • Deborah, a housewife who became a judge
  • Moses, a stutterer who became a deliverer
  • David, a shepherd boy who became a king
  • Joseph, a prisoner who became prime minister
  • Esther, an orphan who became a queen
  • Joshua, an assistant who became a conqueror
  • James and John, fishermen who became close disciples of Christ and were known as “sons of thunder”
  • Peter, a businessman who became a great evangelist
  • Jacob, a refugee who became the father of the twelve tribes of Israel
  • Paul, a persecutor who became the greatest missionary in history and the author of two-thirds of the New Testament

All God needs to be able to use you is all of you. God will use you right where you are, today.
