Unlikely Spokesperson

Bill Hader

In 2013, Bill Hader was hired to be the commercial voice of “Mr. Peanut”. Ironically, Hader was chosen for the role despite having a severe peanut allergy! To say the least, he was an unlikely spokesperson for peanuts.

God has a history of choosing unlikely people to speak for him. Fearful Gideon became a great warrior. The young widow Ruth found herself in the genealogy of Christ. Rebellious Jonah eventually converted many evil people. A carpenter and a simple Jewish girl became the earthly parents of Jesus. Peter soon went from denying Christ to proclaiming him as the Savior of the world.

God continually uses unlikely people to speak for him. People like you and me.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”—Acts 1:8.
