Actually, there is much I don’t understand about our God. I don’t understand how He could love such a sinner as I. I don’t understand why He doesn’t wipe evil from this earth. I don’t how He can be eternal. The Trinity. Where is heaven? Hell. I honestly feel like a three year old with endless questions.
I admit it. I’m not very wise. Yet, I do take sweet comfort in the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. To think that He died and then defeated death and hell so that you and I could also conquer death and hell… I am dumbstruck.
Try telling it to a hundred people, though, and you risk all one hundred finding you a fool. The Apostle Paul warned us, though. He told us that would happen.
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. For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Where are the wise? I submit to you that the wise are not in political parties, not in Congress, not on college campuses. The wise are teaching Sunday school, preaching the Gospel, and filling the altars.
Wisdom is found in His Spirit, knowledge in His Word, and power in the cross.
