Ordinary People, Extraordinary Purposes

Ordinary People, Extraordinary Purposes

Sep 02, 2018

Passage: Ezra 2:1-70

Preacher: Allen Duty

Series: Renewed Worship: The Book of Ezra

Category: Sunday Morning


This chapter is basically a big list of everyone who returned from Babylon to Jerusalem when King Cyrus gave them his permission to return home and rebuild the temple.

As you read the chapter, you realize that there's nothing extraordinary about these people. These are ordinary leaders and ordinary people, whose lives are characterized by ordinary faithfulness. In other words, they are exactly like us.

But the beauty is that God achieves his extraordinary purposes through people like them (Jesus descended from these very people!) and like us.

We learned that God uses ordinary people to accomplish his extraordinary plan of redemption.
