John…man of love

Like John, ordinary and self-ambitious, we can still be used by God.

Philip…man of details

Like Philip, ordinary and weak in faith, we can still be used by God.

Nathanael…man of prejudice

Like Nathanael, ordinary and prejudice, we can still be used by God.

Matthew…the despised

Like Matthew, ordinary and despised, we can still be used by God.

Thomas…the pessimist

Like Thomas, ordinary and negative, we can still be used by God.

James…the less

Like James, ordinary and insignificant, we can still be used by God.

Simon…the zealot

Like Simon, ordinary with questionable character, we can still be used by God.

Thaddaeus…also called Judas and Lebbaeus

Why the Apostles Had a Global Influence

The apostle’s influence was based upon God’s power (not their own).  Therefore, when we allow God to use us to accomplish His purpose, He places His power inside of us to accomplish great things.

Our extraordinary God uses ordinary people to accomplish His purpose.
