I ran across a couple quotes today that I thought would be interesting to consider.
For anyone to claim that God cannot use them is to simply make excuses for not allowing God to work through them. There are countless examples of people with what we would call “Checkered Pasts” who God used to further His will. The above listing doesn’t even scratch the surface of people with troubled lives who were changed and useful because of the power of God and His will.
Consider what Paul had to say to the church at Corinth.
If we have been buried with Christ and risen again, instead of making excuses, we should be thankful that God desires to save us and use us to save others.
