Weak and Despised – Carl Trueman

God delights in using the weak and the despised things in this world. How do we know? Because of the Cross of Christ. Nobody on that day when Christ was crucified was weaker or more despised than Christ was hanging on that tree at Calvary because God delights in taking hold of the weak and using them to demonstrate that the power belongs to Him, it was because Luther had a grasp of that, that he was able to be such a great pastor. He was not a type of pastor who spent his time hob knobbing with the rich and powerful in his congregation because he thought they would be able to make a donation to a building project. Luther was a man who spent his time dealing with anyone who felt weak and inadequate and he did that because he got a good grasp of the Cross of Christ. -Carl Trueman
