God does not look to find those who are the elites and those who are the most skilled. Rather He looks for the weak and foolish who trust in Him. God uses broken pots and vessels,He uses imperfect people who trust in a perfect God. Thus all men will know that it is God who has manifested His power and glory through a brother or sister. It is realized then that it was not the work of men but the work of God. To bring maximum glory to His Name the Lord is assembling an end times movement of weak, poor, helpless, and despised people who the religious system of our day have written off as unusable for their purposes.These believers God is going to anoint to carry the message of the Gospel in power to a lost and dying world. We see evidence of this in the underground Churches of the world where unknown itinerant evangelists go from town to town sharing the Good News.For the Scripture declares: But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised thingsand the things that are notto nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him.The question is, are we weak enough for God to call and use us? Are we empty of all the traditions of religious men so that we can learn from the Lord Himself? This is the way of the Lord. God is looking for a Gideons armyof those that are willing to trust fully in His power and not in any might or power of their own. God uses nobodies that will trust Him implicitly and fully. Are you going to be part of this Gideons army today?from: http://gospelfellowships.net/principles-book/

Agreed. It's long been true that the poor are rich in faith.The harvest has often been greater among the poor. Faith has often been greater among the poor. Children are another category of the weak. May there be many of them who become followers of Jesus Christ!Jesus said: Allow the little children and forbid them not to be coming towards Me: for of such is the kingdom of the heavens. (Matthew 19:14).Little children are amazed by the story of Jesus. They are amazed by his birth, Sermon on the Mount, miracles, birth, death, resurrection, and promises of His return. They are ready to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.It's sophisticated adults who make things complicated and difficult.Some groups of people are more ready than others to receive the Word of God into good soil and to allow it to grow. Some people are more ready than others to declare the Word.In Matthew 21:15, we see...children crying out in the sacred place and saying: Hosanna to the Son of David.
