Who Said They Could Not Preach???

1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1 Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1 Corinthians 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

You are probably by now wondering what I am talking about. Who said they could not preach, was the question that I put for my title. And here is my answer, "children." People don't believe they have enough experience to preach to adults. The verses I put above says that God uses the foolish and weak things to confound (confuse) the wise. I believe that God will equip those he calls. When a child that preaches and has knowledge and will say things that some adult preachers won't say then God is using them.

This is something that I never knew before. One night we were coming home and we were discussing people who didn't agree with children preachers. All of a sudden my dad says, "do you know who dad (my grandpa) says was a big reason why he got saved." We said who and he said a 7 year old preacher. My grandpa who is 90 years old and has been a Christian for a long, long time and he preaches the gospel himself says that a 7 year old was the one who shared the gospel with him. This was something I never knew. I've heard a 7 year old in April of 2008 give a message, then the evangelist gets up and said that the little boy almost preached his message and he begins to preach. The 7 year old and the evangelist were right in sync with one another. Now that is God!!!

Awhile back I found these videos of a 10 year old preacher. I've actually wrote a line down that he said and when I get down and depressed, I say it to myself. I hope you enjoy these videos.

The Lord can use whomever He wants to share His message.

I'll have to come back and watch the videos.

I'll have to watch these later, but I agree that God can use anyone! No matter their age. Let us not forget that Christ was 12 when He was teaching in the temple.
