Be Like Gideon (1 Corinthians 1:18-31)Steve Howard, February 5, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
People thought that thru their own wisdom they would rid themselves of Christ by crucifying Him. However, thru their foolishness they fulfilled the plan of salvation for all mankind. Romans 1:19 Everyone knows that there is a God. Our own timeframe is created upon a before Christ and after Christ. Due to the sacrifice of Christ every person has the opportunity to be saved. It's foolishness to many that one person years ago could die to save the future. Romans 1:26-32 It's not Gods will for anyone to perish but many will turn against God and will turn to themselves seeking after their own lusts. We commonly think that we are the only ones that are going thru something, no one understands what our battle feels like. But Christ himself was rejected and is still rejected today. We seek after things in this world that please us, love, drugs, alcohol, stuff, money. In the end these things will all be destroyed.

1 Corinthians 1:18-31
18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27But 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; 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. (KJV)
