So, I was trying to look up where the Bible says that God uses the weak to shame the strong so no one can boast, which is in Corinthians. In reading the rest of the chapter, I was blessed by the frankness of Paul. I could relate so much at that moment, I thought I should post this for all of you:
"Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block for Jews and foolishness for Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strenghth.” 1 Corinthians 1:22-25
So yes, I know Christianity sounds crazy to the modern person. I know its not always going to be rainbows and miracles. Paul knew that too. But the message of the Cross is the wisdom and power of God to us who are being saved.
