1 Corinthians 1:24-30
24 But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the mighty power of God and the wonderful wisdom of God. 25 This “foolish” plan of God is far wiser than the wisest of human plans, and Gods weakness is far stronger than the greatest of human strength. 26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes, or powerful, or wealthy when God called you. 27 Instead, God deliberately chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose those who are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28 God chose things despised by the world things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important, 29 so that no one can ever boast in the presence of God. 30 God alone made it possible for you to be in Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made Christ to be wisdom itself. He is the one who made us acceptable to God. He made us pure and holy, and he gave himself to purchase our freedom.
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

When the Spirit of God shows us what sanctification means, the struggle begins. Our “wisdom” always stands in the way, There is something that pulls with resentment within us against the sanctification of Jesus Christ. We must be willing to set aside our “wisdom” for His. The greatest wisdom the world has to offer is foolishness to God. God alone makes it possible for us to in Christ Jesus. Whatever we are or whatever “wisdom” we have to offer has nothing to do with our becoming like Christ. And when Christ becomes our salvation, we enter into the realization that sanctification is the holiness of Jesus imparted to us. It is His patience, His love, His faith, His purity, and His goodness that is displayed through us. It is not me imitating Him, but “Christ in me.” So I can not boast on what I have done, but what Christ is doing through me. Set aside that struggle within you and take on the righteousness of Christ, accept what God alone made possible, “Christ in you.”

Have a God Day!
