One of the men God used mightily in his generation was D. L. Moody. Moody was the Billy Graham of his day. Dwight Moody was a shoe salesman when he came to faith. You might say that Moody went from selling soles to saving souls. He was just a run-of-the-mill guy.
Do you know what got Moody pointed in the right direction after his conversion? A man went up to him once and said, "Moody, the world has yet to see what God can do in and through and with a man who is totally committed to Him." Moody said, "When I heard that, I said to the Lord, 'I want to be that man.' "
Do you know what Billy Graham was when God called him? He was a farm boy living in North Carolina. He came to faith at a meeting held by a traveling evangelist. Young Billy Frank, as they called him, dedicated his life to the Lord. Who could have imagined what God would do with that young man?
The most godly people I know are also the most down-to-earth. God is looking for ordinary people to use.
