1 Corinthians 1:26-27 (NET)
Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position.
But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong.


Many of the Corinthian believers believed because they needed the Lord to solve their physical and material problems. Some of them were really poor and needy. They saw the demonstration of the spirit and power of God when the gospel was preached and this attracted them to receive the gospel(1 Cor 2:4).

Many people who eventually became born again came to the Lord because of their needs and wants. Some wanted the Lord to heal them or heal a loved one, and then they believed because they saw the Lord’s healing power. Others were in really tight situations of lack and want, and they needed the help of the Lord- and this drew them to the Lord. The unfortunate thing is that some people do not grow above that realm of needs-propelled faith without a desire for a relationship with the Lord God, and this is indeed the realm of spiritual babes.

God loves to choose the weaker and rejected ones in order for Him to use them to show forth His glory and power. Abraham and Sarah found it impossible to have children, but Abraham was the one the Lord chose to be the patriarch of His firstborn nation.

Go into today remembering that just as it is impossible for a person to receive the gospel unless he acknowledges his need for the Lord, it is impossible for God to use those who are proud and puffed up for His good works because He resists the proud. Those who receive His grace are those who are humble enough to look up to Him (James 4:6).
