After studying 1 Corinthians 1:21-31, I began to understand the greatness of our God even the more. It is a powerful revelation that the creator,who has the option to create from pure raw materials would rather take an already blemished creation and mold it into something usable for the Kingdom of God. The world with all of its knowledge and wisdom would deemed that to be simply "foolishness".Yet God majors in what the world calls "foolishness".
The world's perspective is it is "foolishness" to take one man to die and shed his blood for the redemption of all mankind. To the world, it is "foolishness" to believe that an invisible God is interested in the well being of a people who have a choice to choose him or not. The world's wisdom cannot accept the "foolishness" that God would give up his only son just so mankind could be in right relationship with him.
I am so glad that God can take what seemingly looks like "foolishness" by the world's standards and raise a person up to have dominion and power in the holy ghost. See only God can take a person from drugs, violence, abuse, neglect, poverty, suicide, depression and puts His loving arms around them and redeem them unto himself. It may seem like "foolishness", but I along with millions of other believers rejoice in the God of our salvation over the fact that he chooses "foolishness". He chooses people who have so many flaws, people who are unfaithful, people who are unreliable to invest his valuable anointing into.
Oh, we celebrate the ability of God to take the "foolishness" of a person and transform it to loyalty, integrity, holiness, character, reliability and most of all redeemed and righteous in Jesus Christ. I don't know a great deal, but I do know that our "foolishness" is not match for our great God.
