God stampeded the first century society with swaybacks, not thoroughbreds. Before Jesus came along, the disciples were loading trucks, coaching soccer, and selling Slurpee drinks at the convenience store. Their collars were blue, and their hands were calloused, and there is no evidence that Jesus chose them because they were smarter or nicer than the guy next door. The one thing they had going for them was a willingness to take a step when Jesus said, “Follow me.”. . . . . . .Are you more dinghy than cruise ship? More stand-in than movie star? More plumber than executive? More blue jeans than blue blood?
Congratulations. God changes the world with folks like you.
