We are common folk. We sit in the bleachers, eat at diners, change diapers, and wear our favorite team's ball cap. Fans don't wave when we pass. Servant's don't scurry when we come home. Chauffers don't drive our cars; butlers don't open our doors or draw our baths. Doormen don't greet us and security doesn't protect us. We are regular folk.
And we wonder: Does God use people like us?
He did. God stampeded the first-century society with swaybacks, not thoroughbreads. Before Jesus came along, the disciples were loading trucks, coaching soccer, and selling slurpee drinks at the convenience store. Their collars were blue, their hands were calloused, and there is no evidence that Jesus chose them because there were smarter or nicer than the guy next door. The one thing they had going for them was a willingness to take a step when Jesus said "Follow Me."
Are you more dinghy than a cruise ship? More stand-in than movie star? Mor blue jeans than blue blood? Congratulations. God changes the world with folks just like you.
