1 Corinthians 1:27

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

 

It is by the wisdom of God’s design and plan that the world through its wisdom and the pursuit of wisdom knows not God. On the contrariwise, God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and He has chosen the weak things of this world to confound the things which are mighty.

I would not be so brazen as to suggest that science, math, literature or the arts are not of value and necessary. However I will say that the wisdom of this world cannot redeem one’s soul nor fill our being with the saving grace of the LORD Jesus Christ. To receive that saving grace we must come to the realization that we are weak and foolish of our own and that eternal life comes from the saving grace wrought through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ at Calvary.

The LORD has chosen the foolish and weak things of the world to confound the wise. The foolish and weak appearing event of the death of a man on a cross bringing eternal life certainly confounds the wisdom of this world. Likewise the situations of life we end up in throughout our journey certainly can appear foolish and leave us absolutely weak and unable to fix the problem. However if we will embrace the foolish and weak appearing cross of Calvary, in our daily life, just as we did initially, we will discover the LORD’s infinite, omnipotent and omniscient grace and love redeeming us and bringing us ever higher and deeper into His glorious goodness.

2 Corinthians 3:18, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
