1 Corinthians 1:28-29 (NET)
God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, so that no one can boast in his presence.
When Terna was a teenager, he used to hear the message of the gospel but he ignored it because he wanted to enjoy his life and the gospel looked like something that would deny him this enjoyment. He was a very adventurous person and liked trying new things out.
By the time he was 35 years old, he had been worn out and weary of ’enjoying life’. Many things had happened to him, his marriage was broken, he started having certain health challenges, and his heart was filled with hatred and anger. Two days after his wife left him, he was scrolling through some channels on the TV and he heard a preacher inviting the viewers to accept the Lord Jesus Christ. At this point in his life, he was now wary and burdened, he now remembered that there was peace and joy in Christ because he had heard the gospel all his life. He was now ready to accept the Lord Jesus.
You see, in order for a person to receive the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, they have to first acknowledge their need for God. Many times, a physical or material need reveals this need faster, and that is why the gospel is preached to the poor (Luke 4:18, Matt 11:15). Everyone needs the gospel, but not everyone knows that they need the gospel until a need they can understand reveals their spiritual poverty.
God loves to save those who are the lowest and most despised because through their lives, He manifests His superior power. He alone can make something out of nothing.
Go into today remembering that when the Lord saves the despised and downtrodden, he makes them into great people both in time and in eternity.
