but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
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.
