S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Corinthians 1:18
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.
St. Paul told the Christians at Corinth that “The Message Of The Cross” is foolishness to those who are in direct rebellion to Almighty God. However, to those of us who are being saved, it is the power of God!
How could Paul say this? Because it’s the thing the devil could never do. It is impossible because of his nature for the enemy of our soul to give anything or sacrifice anything for someone else. If you can imagine the most selfish, narcissistic thief and killer, then you have uncovered the devil. Jesus IS EVERYTHING the devil IS NOT. He is all of the fruits of the Spirit, and He is the one who gave His very life for the redemption of humankind. It’s always going to come down to the stark reality of “The Message Of The Cross.” One group, the takers—led by Satan himself—will continually call it foolishness. But to the billions of us who are saved and are being saved, we will always call it “The Power Of God!”
Thank you this AM for “The Message Of The Cross.” It is the one thing that broke my rebellion and humbled me as a young man. I have always known it to be the power of God! Amen
