1Corinthians 1-2~ Day 65- Happy Fourth!! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

I hope you squeeze your reading in today amongst all th fun activities!!

“For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but it is the power of God to us who are being saved.” (1:18)
Isn’t that the truth?!
Nothing has changed for 2000 years! People back in the day of Paul thought Christ crucified was foolish, and people today think it’s foolish. But to us….those who are saved by this “foolish plan”...…we see the power of God through it!
In a way, this statement makes me feel bolder to proclaim my faith. I just need to remember, those who are being called will respond, those who find it foolish will reject it.… It’s not in the perfect words that I could/should use that convinces someone (as Paul pointed out in 2:4), but in the condition of the heart of the person hearing about Christ.
The condition of their heart is not my responsibility. It’s only my responsibility to share about Christ. (1:21-25)  Doesn’t that take a lot of pressure off? Still… I do feel a little pressure and work on just opening my mouth and saying something!
God help me to open my mouth!
