Grace for you today !
Jesus Your Defence and Excellence!
“For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.” (I Corinthians 1:21 NKJV) “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
I Corinthians 1:18 NKJV
This is amazing ! The world through its wisdom did not know God . The wisdom of this world uses its own logic and philosophy to know God & this pursuit denies them to really know the True God.
Because the wisdom of God contradicts the human logic and philosophy. The true wisdom of God is manifested through the Cross where Christ was crucified.
But the message of Cross is foolishness to the philosophical and logical mind set of the world. To such it is – “what sanity is there for any god to die on the Cross devised by the Romans, which was meant for the most notorious criminals? “ Is Jesus then a notorious criminal deserving the cross ? No sir ! No No No…. Nowhere near to be even called as a criminal .
He came in the flesh and DIED FOR AND DIED AS the most wretched and notorious sinner . That’s why His death has the POWER TO SAVE THE MOST WRETCHED PERSON .
HIS DEATH HAS JUSTIFIED (MADE RIGHTEOUS) THE UNGODLY. ( Romans 4:5).
Paul the Apostle preached exactly this as the Gospel ( Good News ) and was accused & branded as a preacher of “ Hyper Grace “
My beloved, only radical preaching of grace can bring radical transformation & save mankind ! Amen 🙏
