Help Wanted: Superstars Need Not Apply (8 of 11)
Series: What's In It For Me?
I Corinthians 1:26-31
I don't know how many college presidents we have today, I don't know how many Miss Texas' we have or how many Miss Americas we have, I don't know how many we have with a super bowl ring, I don't know how many NBA players we have present today, I don't know how many we have in the Fortune 500, I don't know how many we have that the world would truly call a superstar, but I am going to tell you that God needs you today.
