For many of us, our lives are marked with inconsistency. This makes us ordinary. We may feel we have little or nothing to contribute to Christ's cause. We think God could never use someone who has failed as badly as we have. The reality is that God always looks for the ordinary. He relishes the opportunity to use the ordinary person.
In Ordinarily Faithful, author Dr. Chad Keck surveys Gideon, whose story is told in the Old Testament book of Judges, to show how God used this ordinary Israelite farmer in mighty ways. Though Gideon was a man with many faults and doubts, he was ordinarily faithful--he moved forward one step at a time each day, never taking his eyes off the promise of God.
Filled with modern-day life examples and applications, Ordinarily Faithful challenges, teaches, and encourages all believers. It helps us understand how God worked not only in Gideon's life but in the lives of other ordinary people in the Scriptures who walked in faith, believing that God would do what He promised. It provides the spiritual encouragement to know that God uses ordinary and faithful men and women to do amazing things.
