But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak–base—despised–things which are not—That no flesh should glory in his presence.–1 Cor. 1:27-29
It is a foolish mistake to think that God only uses those with high IQ’s, great abilities, and good educations. The truth is that God takes great delight in using common, average, ordinary, uneducated people. And He wants to use you! Author David Platt wrote:
In Jesus’ simple command to ‘make disciples,’ he has invited every one of his followers to share the life of Christ with others in a sacrificial, intentional, global effort to multiply the gospel of Christ through others. He never intended to limit this invitation to the most effective communicators, the most brilliant organizers, or the most talented leaders and artists — all the allegedly right people that you and I are prone to exalt in the church. Instead, the Spirit of God has empowered every follower of Christ to accomplish the purpose of God for the glory of God in the world. This includes the so-called wrong people: those who are least effective, least brilliant, or least talented in the church.
Building the right church, then, is dependent on using all the wrong people.
