Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

God's Oxymorons

White… Christian… rapper.


There has to be an oxymoron in there somewhere. But certainly no more than retired military… introverted… pastor. One of the most mysterious things about God’s gracious call is that He is completely unpredictable. If I was picking a lineup of people to represent me and present my message to the world, I would pick smart people, pretty people, talented people, wonderfully extroverted magnetic personality people. But thank God that my ways aren’t His ways. Thank God that in His sovereignty, He has chosen to use frail vessels to carry and dispense His Gospel (2 Cor. 4:7). For some reason, He has chosen me—which is far more inexplicable that His choosing a white Christian rapper.

Even though my praise chorus head will hurt and my Southern Gospel ears will probably bleed, I am excited to hear KJ-52 rap the Gospel to the 1000+ attendees of the WVCSB Youth Evangelism Conference this weekend. Join with me in prayer that, through the use of these frail vessels, the Lord will draw many to His salvation and service.

And as far as that white Christian rapper—go ahead boy… Do Yo Thang.
