God Uses Messed Up People

John ArmstrongSpirituality

Somehow I got it into my head, perhaps in my early twenties, that God only used those people who "got it together." Now do not misunderstand me. I am not promoting lawlessness at all. I think bad Christian living does considerable harm to the mission of the Church. But the fact is God uses messed up and weak people to do his work. Someone sent me a YouTube clip that says this well. This is not only pretty clever but quite edifying.

I had a long and hard day. I spent it writing in preparation for my speaking the next few days in Texas for the Anglican Mission in America and Trinity Presbyterian Church in Plano. It was one of those days when a lot went wrong. I felt quite unready to "be used" in the coming days. This video lifted my spirits considerably. Enjoy!
