1 Corinthians 1:18 (MSG); The Message that points to Christ on the Cross seems like sheer silliness to those hell bent on destruction, but for those on the way of salvation it makes perfect sense…..
For long, believers have been considered as “good” people who are wonderful parents, attend church faithfully and are commendable employees or employers.
Christianity has been tagged to moral uprightness as its qualifier. Morality is a very good thing but there is more to being a believer in Christ Jesus than simply having good morals.
Sadly, this has also defined the pattern of the sermons and teachings in the Church of Christ. In certain places, Christians are only being encouraged to be good people.
There is more. There is a crazy side to the believer.
The scriptures say, “The message of the cross is foolishness to those that are perishing…” (1 Corinthians 1:18).
It’s high time we started to preach a full gospel, even though it may sound like foolishness to those of this world.
Let the men of this world hear deeper words of this life come off from our pulpits and wonder; then we will be preaching.
Let the boundaries of our faith stretch to the point which is seen as impossible by the world, then we will be preaching!
Let our words come with the weight of the revelation of what no eye has seen, no ear has heard and what has not been imagined by men.
Then we will be preaching!

We ought to preach a gospel that sounds like foolishness to those of this world. Let the men of this world hear deeper words of this life come off from our pulpits and wonder; then we will be preaching. Let the boundaries of our faith stretch to the point which is seen as impossible by the world, then we will be preaching!
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank You because I walk in this wisdom every day of my life. I am a distinctive believer! The words from my spirit are great words; the earth cannot contain them because they can only take a God to perform. Wisdom is upon my lips and puts to shame the wisdom of this world. I refuse to speak like an ordinary man. My life is a stream of endless possibilities! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
