1 Corinthians 1
Did you know that it was by God’s design that we would look like fools to the world? It’s almost comical what Paul says in 1 Cor 1:23. He says, “When we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense.” This is certainly true in today’s world.
Aren’t you glad God chooses to use those the world considers to be fools, and people counted as nothing (1 Cor 1:28). That’s what the apostles were in the book of Acts. (Acts 4:13) He uses us to communicate what is really important and to bring to nothing the things the world holds so dear.
It was also God’s design that the things of God would never be understood by human wisdom! (1 Cor 1:21) Have you ever wondered why what God is doing doesn’t make sense? I think we can conclude from these verses that when we are confused, or don’t understand, it’s because we are trying to figure God out with human wisdom. If things don’t make sense to us, maybe it should be a red flag to show us we are looking at things with human wisdom. From God’s perspective, The foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.(1 Cor 1:25)
Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. All we need is Him! You have every spiritual gift (1 Cor 1:6) Sounds like 2 Peter 1:3… you have everything you need to live a godly life
