Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Consider What You Were

 Brothers and sisters, consider what you were when God called you to be Christians. Not many of you were wise from a human point of view. You were not in powerful positions or in the upper social classes.  But God chose what the world considers nonsense to put wise people to shame. God chose what the world considers weak to put what is strong to shame.  God chose what the world considers ordinary and what it despises—what it considers to be nothing—in order to destroy what it considers to be something.  As a result, no one can brag in God’s presence.  You are partners with Christ Jesus because of God. Jesus has become our wisdom sent from God, our approval, our holiness, and our ransom from sin.  As Scripture says, “Whoever brags must brag about what the Lord has done.” – 1 Corinthians 1:26-31

  4. We All Travel From Darkness Into Light, and those Who Knows that in a snap of fingers you might find yourself back in the Dark with the knowledge of Christ which drive you mad..until you fall back on your knees and see the light again.. that for nothing on earth you want to be apart from that light.
