Pastor Jana taught a great message about the value God places upon everyone. Everyone recognizes the names of Noah, Moses, David, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They all dared to be different than the world. That difference made a positive difference in the world for the kingdom of God.
She also brought up the name of another Old Testament man named Othniel. He became a judge for Israel during a time they had fallen into idolatry. God was angry with the Children of Israel for that and allowed them to become slaves of a wicked king. Once they grew weary of the bondage and cried out to the Lord He sent them Othniel. He was the nephew of Caleb. It’s highly possible that God used Caleb to influence Othniel to become a great leader. Likewise, each member of the body of Christ can do great works just like Othniel did.
