Weakness Or Wisdom?

So often, we mistakenly think the key to having a life that count is more Bible knowledge, more financial resources or more influence. But scripture tells us differently. 1 Corinthians 1:18-25 tells us that God just doesn’t tolerate the foolish, weak and lowly. He chooses then. To make a difference, we don’t need more. We need willingness to give more.

God seems to handpick and set apart unlikely people. He uses each of them for a redemptive purpose, despite their inadequacies. And turns their impossible to possible.

Similarly, Anyone who looks at the cross will thank God it’s not loving or powerful, but cruel and unfeeling. Because when we see the cross as a part of the whole story, We will see the cross of the chapter not the entire book.

To those who embrace weakness and surrender to foolishness, Jesus will open up a new reality that transforms the poverty of our nature by the riches of His grace. It is in this kingdom that we find great that spread its arms out on the cross, and never stopped reaching out for everyone even those who reject Him.

Our faith and our calling do not rest in human wisdom, but in the power of God. This means we must pray daily for his kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven. It is an invitation for us to take up our cross, the apparent falseness of it and the scorn that may come because of it, and comfort the worlds fourth power with the fact that there was a different way of wielding power. Define and characterized by love.

God qualifies the unqualified and He deems the unlikely, likely. Never think of your inadequacies is too much for Him. He’s called you. He’s chosen you. So go and do great things for God. You are qualified and your weakness, for what is impossible with man is possible with God.
