Your Daily Dose of Boldness – God Invites the Nobodies

God Invites the Nobodies

I entitled this post, “God invites the nobodies,” for several
reasons…

One: God does not play favorites. We are all made of
the same cloth in his eyes.
Two: God has always done things in a very
unconventional way.
Three: If you think you’re a “nobody,” know that God
sees you each day as an important somebody.

I say this because the story of Christ’s birth is surrounded by a
bunch of nobodies. In fact, the major players in the Christmas
pageant were all unknowns leading up to Christ’s birth. God
was not born to a queen or a king. He was not surrounded by
wealth and comfort. His birth was not attended by royalty or
heralded in the newspapers or magazines of the time. His birth
was a rather squalid and humble affair.

No one of note knew about or attended God’s birth. No one
except for the “nobodies,” that is. Let’s take a moment to discuss
these people.

Mary was a teenage girl from a small town. In Bible times,
women were not important people. When you mix in her
premarital pregnancy, you have a real nobody on your hands.
Yet, she was God’s choice as one of the most critical players in
Jesus’s birth—she was his mother.

Joseph was a blue-collar worker from the same small town,
who took on Mary and marred his reputation. He also adopted
the role of a foster parent and surrogate dad to history’s most
important son.

Shepherds were often poor, uneducated men and boys who
worked day and night in the elements tending their sheep. Yet
these lowly peasants were personally invited by the angles of
God.

The Magi, though rich, were foreigners from strange lands
with strange beliefs, yet God invited these men to celebrate
Christ’s birth.

In each instance, God chose an unconventional player
in The Greatest Story Ever Told and, in doing so, tells all of
us that regardless of our earthly status, we too can have an
essential part in God’s story. Understand that God invites you
to the same table he invited Mary and Joseph. And although all
— the poor and rich, the “somebodies” and the “nobodies,”
the beautiful and the ugly, and the righteous and unrighteous
— are welcome to the feast, some may not make it because
they are too busy building their own kingdoms. In the
meantime, God’s kingdom is filling up with the people no one
notices—no one, except for Him.

I WILL CALL THEM ‘MY PEOPLE’ WHO ARE NOT MY
PEOPLE; AND I WILL CALL HER ‘MY LOVED ONE’ WHO IS
NOT MY LOVED ONE,” AND, “IN THE VERY PLACE WHERE IT
WAS SAID TO THEM, ‘YOU ARE NOT MY PEOPLE,’ THERE
THEY WILL BE CALLED ‘CHILDREN OF THE LIVING GOD.’
