Who Takes Note of You?


1 Corinthians 1:26-31
New Living Translation (NLT)

26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. 27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28 God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God. 30 God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. 31 Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”

“Not Able” To Notable

The world will cast its lot
On whether we’re worthy or not,
Perhaps we’re one of the chosen
Or maybe we’re set for demotion,

Maybe we’ll walk in the sun
And be blessed with a life full of fun,
Or then we might just stumble along
And feel there’s nowhere that we belong,

To be notable is such a great blessing,
All that you do seems so impressing,
But when you’re cursed and not able,
Gaining accolades is just a cruel fable,

But take heart and never have doubt
For the Lord works with those who are without,
Like David who killed Goliath with a stone
And since then he always been known,

So let go of this crazy old world
And the labels it so often hurls,
There’s no one you need to impress
Being loved from above is our total success.

You alone are able. You alone are worthy of fame. We thank You for loving us and in doing so, make us infinitely notable.
