Jesus was an unlikely Messiah, with his background.
That’s the whole point.
Nathanael equally seemed an unlikely disciple, with his prejudice and his preconceptions.
Yet, God uses unlikely people in the service of the kingdom, now as ever, whether it’s a boy Samuel, a shepherd David, a reluctant Moses, a runaway Jonah… or us.
God knows us, with our weaknesses as well as our strengths, sees our potential and calls us, either directly or through friends like Philip who wouldn’t take no for an answer?
