1 Corinthians 1:21 NLT: Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe.
God is great. His wisdom surpasses human understanding. How can the created seek to explain the creator? That’s an impossible adventure without the help of the creator. God created man and fashioned out the best way to save man from death through the death of His own son on the cross. And that whoever believes in Him should be saved. For one to believe, someone needs to preach the good news of salvation to such a person. This will bring about conviction by the Holy Spirit of God on the inside of the person. No human philosophy can convince a man to believe in God. This is only achieved with the help of God’s spirit.
Man, on the other hand, seeks to explain these things using human wisdom. But the scripture reminds us today that God knew from the very beginning that man cannot know Him on his own. So He chose the foolish method in the sight of man to bring about the knowledge of Him and salvation.
So my dear friend in Christ, take seriously the message and sharing of the gospel; for by it, God has chosen that man should know him and be saved. Also never seek to understand God by your own human philosophy or thinking because it will end in futility. Trust God to do that by His spirit. No need to argue with those who think they are wise in this world seeking to explain God or His ways. Rather pray for them that they may come to this understanding and be saved. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I have the wisdom of God in me.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for choosing the foolish things of this world to shame the wise. May your wisdom always guide me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
