You probably aren’t reading this unless you feel like a loser. If so, cheer up! Because God loves us losers and has a habit of using us to do great things!
Let’s look at just some of the evidence:
Paul, who killed Christians, before becoming one himself wrote:
“But we have this treasure (the light of Christ) in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us.”
(2Co 4:7 NRS)
The truth is God prefers people who know they are weak, who know they have flaws, who can admit their mistakes, and — most importantly — who ask for help.
God specializes in taking us losers and displaying Christ’s wisdom and power through us.
So go forth losers of the world and don’t be afraid of being used by God!
