Consider Your Calling

As I was preparing for our mid week service, I was reading through 1 Corinthians 1 and came across some interesting and challenging verses. The following verses really popped out and caused me to pause and consider not only my calling into ministry but also as a follower of Christ.

"For consider you calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom and our righteousness and sanctification and redemption. Therefore, as it is written, "Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord"."
-1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (ESV)
