Paul is declaring a powerful truth:1 Corinthians 1:21, : “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.” The reason so many fail to believe in Christ’s death on the cross as the way to be forgiven from their own sin is not because the idea is too hard to understand. It’s because it is too easy. It is foolishness for simpletons, as an unbeliever sees it.
The gospel is not something that can be worked out by logic and philosophy. Evidence can lead us towards the truth (Romans 1:18–20; Psalm 19:1; Matthew 7:7–8) but that truth ultimately has to be accepted as revelation from God.
One thing we should know as Christians is that we are human beings and that sin is inevitable for the bible says,If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
But also we should not forget that our creator is holy and that he says that Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction.
The truth is that sin cannot be taken out from our lives because we are born sinners that is why it is important to always remember that anytime we sin and we sincerely ask for forgiveness from God he is just and faithful to forgive our sins..that is my favorite aspect of Christianity knowing that my creator is aware of my weakness and short comings and being ever ready to forgive my sins when I confess them sincerely.
Let’s throw more light on confessing our sins sincerely.. This does not mean that we should continue doing bad things and keep it at the back of our minds that God will forgive us no, we should be diligent in our ways and not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of our mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
(Hebrews 10:16). This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds
A circle can be seen as an image but it has a more deeper meaning .It is said to be a symbol of Perfection, equality ,completeness and many more. In (Ephesians 4:6 ESV)..There is one God and father of all mankind,who is Lord of all ,works through all and is in all. This Scripture talks about how perfect and complete our God is.(And then the question follows).
Do you own your own circle?Do you take charge of it? Well in (Isaiah 40:22 ESV),it is he who sits above the circle of the earth,and it inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,and spreads them like a tent to dwell in.
God owns everyone’s circle and has put as to take charge of it.It is us who determines the kind of people to be in our circle , does our circle cause God to stretch out the heavens like a curtain; and spreads them like a tent to dwell in? Our circle should be able embrace the lost and love with no conditions whatsoever.
God who is perfect knows everyone’s circle and it short comings that is why he sits over the circle of the earth and keep providing for his children. It doesn’t matter the circle you are in, God does not consider your weakness but rather he looks at how perfect and complete a circle is and carefully moulds you because he says in (Genesis 1:26) that he had created us in his own image and surely we are his image.
“Let God stay in your circle because he is all in all.”
What else would we ask from our creator? Is it enough that he calmed the tempest and assures his children of safety? (Mark 4:35-41 RSV) In this verse the bible speaks about how Jesus Christ calms the storm on the sea with his disciples.. Jesus Christ did not only still the tempest but also he did something wonderful..
Whiles the tempest was raging,Jesus was in the stern asleep on a cushion.. Jesus was asleep on the boat when the tempest was raging,but the disciples were wondering what they would do about the storm and they realised that Jesus was with them so they cried out to Jesus..
Sometimes we forget our creator,we under estimate him but he is the doer of all things. He stills the roaring of seas,the roaring of waves and the tumults of people. There is nothing too big for him to do.
In (Matthew 8:26 RSV) when the disciples when to Jesus saying “save us Lord we are perishing”, he said to them ” why are you afraid ,O men of little faith ? Jesus after saying this went on and he rebuked the winds and the sea and there was a great calm .Where then is our faith,how much faith do we have ,how steadfast are we in our maker. The son of God says we shouldn’t be afraid he is with us he’s got us in his palms..don’t be afraid!! cry out to him and he will arise and calm the raging tempest.
It is true that sometimes our storms are outraging and overwhelming and even coils our soul,but God is the biggest,he is bigger than every storm and he will calm them.. So even as the tempest rages let’s cry out to God and he will calm it through his son Jesus Christ..
Some times you just have to calm down, cry out to the Lord so that he calms the tempest through his son Jesus Christ.
Do you have a friend?…If yes do you know who a friend really is ?…If no read this. Some people say a friend is someone whom you have known for a long time and trust..but the question is do we always trust our friends? Anyways a friend is a person who loves at all times because no one is perfect…
Let see what the Holy Bible says about friendship.. Then the lord God said “It is not good for man to be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”(Genesis. 2:18 RSV)..God said this before the fall of man , before sin even entered the world..so this should tell us that friends are very important in our life’s as humans……God saw the need to make man a companion or a friend because he noticed that man cannot leave alone,and it very true..some people are where they are because of true friends or bad friends..
It is very hard to maintain a healthy and strong relationship because it sometimes becomes messy and challenging.. But we have to love our friends for who they are because good friends are like stars , when they shine we also shine..
Friends will be your ally like countries are allies in war times..
Thinking of how to start that thing?..Look no further read this..(Isaiah43:18-19)..The bible says that we should forget about the past things that is the old things , and God goes on to assure us that he’s about doing something new…Interestingly our dear God even tells us that he is going to make way in the wilderness , streams and the wasteland..This means he doesn’t even care the kind of person you are. So if you are thinking of how to get on your feet and start that marvelous idea of yours,remember that our dear God got your back so you not going to backslide.
Ambivalence has nothing to do with you starting something.. “Gather yourself in the love of God and start gloriously..
