Over July and August we will be starting our next series: Ordinary People; Extraordinary God.
Let me explain.
One of the big conversations I have with people, both inside and even outside the church, is the discussion about a central part of Christianity, which is both beautiful and challenging, and that is the fact we’re ALL called into a ministry with God to advance the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. One of the big responses I get, which I totally understand, is :
“Who am I? I’m not anyone special. In fact, I’m pretty ordinary”
“How could God call anyone like me?”
I think at some point or another, we have all felt like that, I have anyway! I think this is something we need to teach on , as if we look at the bible, it illustrates a great truth that we also find throughout the history of the church: our God is an extraordinary God who uses ordinary people to accomplish his work in this world. This is an amazing encouragement to us , because let’s face it, most of us feel like ordinary people. And if God only called extra-ordinary people for his kingdom, most of us would be left out! But praise God, he calls ordinary people to do his work. In fact, I would say that is one of the extraordinary things about God, is that he does call ordinary people like you and me. So over the summer, we will be teaching on some of the “ordinary” people, who God called to do extraordinary things.
