For Christians worldwide, this week is the foundation of our faith: it is the fulfillment of prophesy in the crucifixion and death of our Lord and the declaration of salvation through His victory over death. We rejoice in the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We also hold fast to our belief that nothing can now and never will separate us from the love of Christ. And we harken to His call, His Great Command. “Go ye.”
Much to the dismay of those who mock and scorn us, the turmoil they create to enveloped not just our nation but nations everywhere serves only to strengthen our faith. And instead of turning to run, instead of cowering, we turn to His Word for reassurance, letting the Bible speak to us about unbelief. The Apostle Paul faced such lack of belief squarely and said:
1 Corinthians 1:18 -19
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.
19 For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 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.
22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;
23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,
24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
Be blessed this and every day.
