I have herd stories that during the 50's healing revival that men would fight over how would speak first or who would speak last, and in all the fist fights and mayhem God still chose to heal during the services.
I think God TENDS to get MORE GLORY
when He uses such crack-potted vessels.
And folks who think of themselves as squeaky clean tend to be arrogant and worse in their flaws . . . it’s just that their flaws and sins are covered over with thicker white-wash.
I’ve walked away from many a service where pride, the flesh, absurdities, stupidity abounded . . .
yet God moved.
Many folks of good heart do stupid things because they don’t know better or aren’t paying attention to their own craziness.
King David was a worst sort of scoundral when he murdered Bathsheba’s husband etc. Yet he was STILL a man after God’s own heart.
There’s plenty of mysteries.
I just choose to take God at His Word and do my best, by His grace to walk it out and into the fabric of my life. He seems to bless that a lot more than not.
