God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty. ( 1Corinthians 1 : 27)
Yes , ordinary people doing, what they can in Christ name can bring about great results. Ordinary people can have great influence upon individuals and society. Jocebed the mother of Moses, for example, devised a plan to keep her baby boy from being killed by the Egyptian authorities. As a result, her child grew up and became Israels’ great emancipator and lawgiver. Mordecai was a servant in the palace during the Jewish exile in Persia. When he learned of a plot to kill the king ,reported it and saved his nation from extinction. (Esther 2 :21-23)
An ordinary man of God an obscure hermit who was deeply disturbed by the horrors of the gladiatorial games decided to do something about it . So one day he joined over 80,000 spectators in the stands . Suddenly he left his seat, ran into the arena, stepped between the fighters. The onlookers roared their disapproval, a command rang out and he was killed on the spot. But his death was not in vain . When the word started to spread that he was the hermit the devout man of God ,protesting this cruel and barbaric sports , a hush fell over the huge stadium and many felt a deep sense of shame. That was the last gladiator contest in the Roman Empire.
Let’s not think for one minute that it is only gifted or well known people can make great impact for God and in Society. God blesses the efforts of ordinary people who are faithful in serving Him. Any believer can witness to a neighbor,pray for someone or show kindness to the needy . Ministering to just one person has eartly and eternal results,for He or she in turn may win many others to the Saviour of the world.
God chooses the base and small things to do mighty things.You can be too big for God to use but never too small. Yes, ordinary people,doing what they can in the name of Christ,can bring tremendous results.
