1 Corinthians 1 verse 25 “Because God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.”
The Apostle Paul knew, to Preach Christ crucified, was foolishness to the world he was preaching to. but to those who accepted it, it was a transforming power.
Christ’s crucifixion affects us every day of our lives. God’s way of being among us is to get down on our level, to enter the humiliation of the death, to share persecution and the pain, to be apart of us and go through things with us.
Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life. John 14 verse 6:
And the way is death to self, I have been crucified with Christ Jesus. Galatians 2 verse 19:
Suffering is apart of reality, and death is apart of that reality, but it is comforting to know that we can never get beneath God. Wherever we are, whether we are going through it and are low. we can be assured that He has been there and is with us there. He is always longing to have fellowship with us no matter where we are and what we are going through.
A God who loves us that much is foolishness to the world.
The transformation that comes from knowing this will revolutionize our daily way of living
