Top Draft Pick

“Let the wonder of this sink in. Your faith is not a witness to any prior power in you. It is a witness to God’s choosing you. It is not a testimony to something so small as self-determination. It is a testimony to the same power that created the universe. God chose to raise you from the dead (Eph. 2:5).” -John Piper

The top college football players are being studied and examined by the professional scouts. Later this week, some—the very best—will be selected to play professionally; the rest will start the ‘spectator’ chapters of their lives.  

Each team wants the best. They desire the players who will strengthen their chances of a Super Bowl victory. Only the biggest, fastest, and strongest will be selected.

God, however, picks his team by a different standard.

Paul reminded the Corinthians of their lives before they were “drafted” onto God’s team. He said, “Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.” (I Corinthians 1:26.

Why would God want them on his team? What could they do for him? Paul goes on, “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” (I Corinthians 1:27)

He concludes the section, “Therefore, . . .  Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 1:31)

God picked us to play on his team. Any wins we experience are not of ourselves, but because God drafted us to join his winning team.
