1 Corinthians 1:22-30

22 God’s way seems foolish to the Jews because they want a sign from heaven to prove it is true. And it is foolish to the Greeks because they believe only what agrees with their own wisdom. 23 So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended, and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense. 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 God’s 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.

God chose the things the world would consider foolish to bring salvation to us. That God Himself would come down to the earth is foolishness to the world. Today is no different than over 2000 years ago. The world still considers the work of Christ Jesus foolishness. But for those who answer the call, we know it is the very life of all that we are. God and God alone made it possible for you to have His righteousness and it was God who made you acceptable to Himself. He is the One who makes us holy and who give us freedom. The world considers this foolish. Once we chose Christ, we chose life and we chose to be in opposition to the world. The world cannot understand our choice, and the world does not like it. The pressure from the world around us to leave Christ behind and follow our own desires will never go away. As long as we live on this earth, society will pressure the Christian to turn away from God and turn to our own selfish desire. Do not let culture mold what you think and thereby what you do. But let the Word of God direct your thoughts and actions by the example given by God Himself through Jesus Christ. God made us pure and holy and He gave Himself to purchase our freedom. Do not turn away from the love so freely given to you, but use the power given to you by the Holy Spirit of God to live for Him.

Have a God Day!
