UNQUALIFIED: FROM OUR WEAKNESS TO GOD’S STRENGTH

“God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called!” That quotation frequently then is followed by a list of biblical figures who fell far short of perfection, but whom God used in significant ways. And the same is true for each of us. In 2 Corinthians, the apostle Paul talks about the challenges he faces and highlights that those challenges are ways in which God began to use him. Paul says that even in his own weakness, God let him know, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). 

If your goals in life don’t go beyond your own strength, or if they don’t demand that you rely on the power of the Holy Spirit, then likely you are not paying close enough attention to God’s call. Join us as we focus on how God used the “unqualified”—people like us—as part of the greatest story ever told.
