If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more: 5circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless.
God of the Unlikely
“The Apostle Paul [Jewish zealot who persecuted Christians to death] was the least likely candidate in the universe to spearhead the spread of Christianity.”—Tom Steller, at the pastoral staff meeting last week.
The boy named David was an unlikely victor over the giant Goliath.
Trumpets and shouts were unlikely demolition equipment for the walls of Jericho.
An unlikely virgin girl mothered the Son of God.
Don’t rule out the unlikely. In the providence of God, likelihood is a non-factor.
