1 Corinthians 1 : 18 – 31
“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? ”
I want you to read rest of the passage HERE .
As i am reading , Holy Spirit revealing something deep new to me. I was reading these verses many many times before , But this time , God’s freshness melting me into his greatness in Christ. Man.
1- Christ is the great power of God
God planned to send His begotten Son Jesus Christ to us. When He send someone , certainly this would be so special. He got the power because he was the source of power.He came to show the love of Father to us that we too are able to enter to this relationship. His offer was free and at no cost for us although He paid an heavy price for it. I am not ashamed to say that Christ is my savior. He died and rose again for me that today i can have freedom in Him. Because my Jesus is the fountain of power and grace , In Him i have all things i need . His presence is enough for me.
2- Christ is the wisdom power of God
When i have Jesus , also me , I have the wisdom of Jesus which comes from my Father. The kind of wisdom which is not from this world.
“Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered” (Prov 28:26)
I am willing to walk in the wisdom of Christ. I am keen for it. Now , in this time , it is revealed to humanity Christ died and rose again. With his wisdom through Holy Spirit i would glorify my Father in heaven. In His wisdom i am able to make right decision in my life. What would be right and what would wrong. I am able to find my value and security in Him. I can rescue others from fires. I am able to grow in Him more and more , because i am siting at the feet of my master to learn what is the true wisdom.
3- Christ is my Salvation
I do not know without Christ what would happen to us. He is our salvation He is my salvation. Now there is line between darkness of the world and the light within us. Where we were before no more exist anymore. Because we found our salvation in Him. From the tertiary of death we came to life. I am belong to Christ now.
Nothing ‘can’ stop you for the plan of God in your life!
Because you are saved and secured in Him. Because Christ is more powerful than any power in this world. Because victory is not far.
