Built on Wisdom

In 1 Cor 2:1-5, We find that it was Paul’s desire that the gospel not be built upon the wisdom of man.  There is wisdom in this world that is called human or natural wisdom.  This is brought about by learning, experience, intelligence and common sense.  Paul says that his message didn’t come from this type of wisdom.  It came and rested on the power of God.  Paul was bringing to the Corinthians a message backed up by the power of God.  God Himself had sent Paul and God was going to back up this call.  With God for us who can be against us.  It wasn’t with superior skills or great wisdom that Paul won people to Christ.  He won them through the love and power of God.  Paul told people that God through Christ could set them free from sin  Paul told them that Christ could heal and that is what happened.  God backed Paul all the way.  People are looking for something that is real.  They have had enough of human wisdom.  I saw a T.V. special about the Beatles one time.  They had gone to a great guru in India and when they found out he was a fake they became even more disillusioned.  Man has had enough of human wisdom, they want something that is real.  That only comes through Jesus Christ.  The gospel must rest on the power of God.  Remember God is standing behind you when you present the gospel.  So present it with confidence.  Your promises today are.  John 3:16, 2 Cor 5:17, 1John 1:9, James 4:7 1 John 4:4.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  Listen to the nudging within your heart, it is voice that will save you from a multitude of problems.  Battles are won and lost before we get into them when we walk defeated or believe we will lose.
