An amazing thing that we learn from the Bible is that God needs people to fulfil the divine purposes. And those people might be us. We know that we have made many mistakes and that there are many flaws in our character. Our whole inclination is that we should stand back and leave it to others to take responsibility. But here’s the wonder of God’s grace. No matter what our failings, no matter what our flaws, no matter what our faults, no matter what our foibles, God chooses to work through people like us.
