When Paul wrote his letter to the Corinthians he was also speaking across the centuries to the church of today. I hope that His words will inspire us and bring conviction to our hearts where we may have become more fascinated with man than with Christ. Vast internet kingdoms have arisen which seem more interested in spiritual power encounters, impressive sermons and grand prophetic declarations than they are with actually living the christian life of sacrifice and humility. Sacrifice and humility are important elements of Christian life associated with “Christ crucified.” And these are the elements that are most closely connected to both the power and wisdom of God.
1 Cor 22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
