Ordinary People.

Have you ever stopped and considered the people Jesus chose to call as His disciples? In Matthew 4:18-22, Jesus is walking along the Sea of Galilee. He sees Peter and Andrew casting nets, and He calls them to follow Him. Then, He passes James and John, who are mending their nets, and He calls these brothers to follow Him. They are four, ordinary men working out on the lake, and Jesus chooses them as His disciples and ultimately uses them to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth!

I’m not sure about you, but I find this comforting. Jesus isn’t looking for the best looking or the most talented. As a matter of fact, God usually chooses people who seem insignificant in the eyes of the world (1 Corinthians 1:26-31) so that He can receive all the glory for what He accomplishes through ordinary people. God isn’t looking for you to be awesome, He is looking for you to be available. Christian, God can use you for His honor and glory if you will simply be available and choose to follow Him, just like those early disciples did!
