I read these verses this morning and am reminded once again, Christianity is “all about The One who is all about us.” Put Him first and get ready to be amazed!
1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (MSG)
Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”
Below is a video of Brian “Head” Welch, a rocker from the heavy metal group, KORN. He gives his testimony on how God came into his drug-filled life and set him free. Now he is a spokesman for God! It is the above portion of Scripture wrapped up in a current, relevant, real-life testimony.
Remember, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”
