The Word for Today – 1 CORINTHIANS 2 – GOD’S WISDOM
The Spirit woke me at 4:26am this morning to have me read 1 Corinthians 2 starting in verse 9:
Then read the remaining verses in this chapter.
Afterwards, I was so excited, I could not go back to sleep to went down stairs, let Claire out, then went and waited in the cool of the Port Isaac porch. and read 1 Corinthians 2 in 3 versions – NKJV, ESV and GNT – as I read, each translation has its own nuances, and word selections.
The Spirit highlighted these verses to me as I read:
- Paul mentioned he didn’t come with superiority of speech or wisdom
- Paul said he was with them in weakness, and in fear, and much trembling
- Paul said his message and preaching were not of persuasive words of wisdom but demonstration of the Spirit and of power
SO THAT YOUR FAITH WOULD NOT REST ON THE WISDOM OF MEN BUT ON THE POWER OF GOD!!!!
- Paul said he spoke wisdom among those who were mature.
- Paul said that the wisdom is of God, not of the rulers of this age
- Paul said we speak of this hidden wisdom, which God predestined before the ages to OUR glory
There is more to say, I will update this post later today…
