A Fool For Christ

February 9, 20189 min
Stephen Colbert defines a fool as "someone who doesn't act according to logic...who doesn't act according to social norms or social expectations of what a human reaction would be." Today we will study what it means to be a fool for Jesus Christ. You see, being a fool is one thing, but being a fool for Christ is something altogether different. Your Takeaway If you are a fool for Jesus Christ then you have all the wisdom and all the power you will ever need. The Lesson The Cross Causes Division - 1:05 1 Corinthians 1:18-19 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” Wisdom and Signs - 2:50 1 Corinthians 1:20-23 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, A Fool for Christ - 5:45 Stephen Colbert defines a fool for Christ. He says, "Someone who is willing to be wrong in society or wrong according to our time, but right according to our conscience which is guided by the Holy Spirit." Did that surprise you?! Well, I would guess that Steven Colbert is full of many surprises. Sign Up & Subscribe Remember to review, like and share the podcast. This helps spread the good news of Jesus around the world.
