SBJ Oshoffa: The Supposedly Foolish Tool God Used To Confound The Wise

sbj-oshoffa-2For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written:  “He catches the wise in their craftiness.” The story of the late founder of Celestial Church of Christ is quite known to many but what we should put into cognizance here is that God truly uses the most foolish things of this world to confound the wise.

He called an ordinary carpenter, from a family that never ever thought their name would become a household name. Thinking about the might and awesomeness of God and I realized that the best of everything in this world ordinarily appear to those who never wanted or deserve the position.  To put it in another way, God does not use the qualified, but anoints the unqualified to be his chosen vessels.

If not for this grace of God, why would an uneducated carpenter turned evangelist be so exalted to the enviable status which God placed the late Pastor founder of CCC worldwide, that he not only became a fisher of men but someone whom the most educated, powerful rulers, movers and shakers as well as the elites of the society sort his counsel and fellowship under, same can be said of the late Pastor and founder of RCCG.

Could Papa SBJ Oshofa’s oratorical skills  be compared to that of Baba Odeyemi but God didn’t wait for his generation before picking a man in Africa, he went to Agange where he picked, by human standard, a ‘fool’ to save mankind who have already accepted Christ but still worship idols from the dragnet of the devil. Be inspired to work of God.

Look around you, think about your old school mates in secondary school and the university, you will realise that the ones  you thought were only passing time or probably looked down on are now the reference point and have rewritten the narrative from your own point of view.

Let’s even look at some of our shepherds, we have several who teach with so much ease and calmness, which, according to our own worldly assumption, does not carry any weight, hence, they hardly come across as great teachers, but with the anointing they carry, the supposedly vibrant most intelligent and brightest pastors know who they go to when push comes to shove.

That’s just God. Once again dear Lord I look up to you for grace and the mercy to excel in geometric proportions.

I wish you can say this prayer as well.

Have a blessed weekend!
