1 Corinthians 1

1 Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s:

3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.

13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;

15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.

16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.

17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

  1. 26. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

    29. That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    31. That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

    God does not usually call those that are accustomed to receiving glory for their accomplishments so that when God does a work through us, everyone knows that it is He that did the work and we do not try to receive the credit for what He has done. It is He that deserves all of the glory for without Him we are powerless.

    Revelation 4:11 KJV
    Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

  2. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
    18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

    Preaching is not with wisdom of words, but the cross of Jesus Christ. The power of preaching should be what God intended it to be, to reach souls with the message of Jesus Christ. Preaching is so important in our walk with God, we should allow preaching to do the job God intended to do. Many of us never allow preaching to work in us and move out the spirits and attitudes that are not like Christ.
    To those that are lost it is foolishness, the world does not take preaching the way a saint of God does. We know we cannot be saved without preaching. We need the preached word of God in our lives working to remove what is not like God!

  3. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    Unity is a key for us in the body of Christ, as our famous president Abraham Lincoln once spoke: A house divided against itself cannot stand. He got this principle from the scripture of the bible.

    If even one or two people stray off the vision that Jesus has for us, then things start to unravel, we cannot travel two different directions and expect to get the same result. We need to have our eyes fixed on Jesus and what he has for us.

    Epheisans 4:13 Til we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

  4. Verses 4-9 MSG “Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives. Just think—you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.” If someone ever tells you it is to late for you or noone cares, that is a lie as these verses confirm.

    The end of the chapter closes with this “….That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.” Blow your trumpet for Jesus!

  5. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
    11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
    12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.

    Here is Paul requesting a very important thing for us to function under His anointing which is UNITY!!!! He wants us to be so strong in UNITY that he asks us to SPEAK THE SAME WORDS!!! Speak about the same things… If we as POFW speak with every one about the same things then they will be wondering what in the world is happening at that church. If we all as a body just brag about our GOD and His strong move at POFW everyone’s curiosity will be pricked and the only way they will find out if it is true is coming and checking it out. TO GOD BE ALL GLORY AND HONOR. Then Paul tries to show them how important it is to know who you are and to whom you belong to. MY BELOVED IS MINE AND I AM HIS!!!!!! Who are you and whom do you serve!!!!! Let the redeem say so!!!!

  6. 30 But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin]. (AMP)

    Amen it is only and because of you God that I have life. Your the one that wakes me up every morning and the reason I’m given another day to worship You and testify who You are. Thank you Jesus for giving me wisdom to see who you truly are and getting me out of the pit I was in. With you I am saved! Your the only one that can satisfy me Jesus! Walking in your will and leaving everything in your hands has never felt so relieved. When we focus on you first and give all our problems to you. You just simply take care of the rest. Thank you Jesus for your promises because your the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow 🙂 no one can compare to you Jesus!!!!!
    33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matt 6:33)

  7. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

    A house divided cannot stand. Our message must be the same and consistent. Any dispute or strife must be handled quickly so not to distract from God’s purpose for the church.

  8. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    it is important that we not only speak the same thing, think the same way, and make the same JUDGMENTS. There is much to be said about everyone being on the same page, making the same judgment calls.

  9. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
    Wow, how many times have we heard this preached in the last several weeks/months. To have MORE of Jesus we have to have the vision of our Pastor. As I was reading this verse it came to my memory from the friday night prayer meeting if the devil can put a wedge in between us and our Pastor/Leaders then he has division and we slow down the revival in the church. We (I) need to have a sensetitive ear to hear what God is telling us. So if you (I) are hanging around someone that is negative and not joined together in the same mind of the church you might want to consider not hanging out with that person. We all have to be on guard for the foxes that come in the church in sheep’s clothing cause they can talk a line of sweetness to you, and before you know it you are causing division. God help us to uplift each other and pray for each other. You know its like a marriage you have to have unity for a marriage to work, if the wife goes around doing her own thing and the husband doing his own thing only one thing is going to happen. The marriage is gonna fall apart. That’s like with the bride of Christ if we don’t do as God wants us to do then we are gonna fall on our face. We (I) need to have less of self and MORE of Jesus!!

  10. 26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
    27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
    28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

    What is it about the wise, might and noble that excludes them from God’s calling? Could it be self-righteousness gleaned from years of study, training or birth-right? I believe so. Having a technical job requires constant study to keep up with advancements and ensure my ability to perform my duties. With the accomplishment of receiving certification comes the knowledge of ones competence in the specific field off study.

    I can understand where attaining certain levels of competency could alter ones sensitivity to the urges and leadings of the Lord. I am very blessed to have been raised with the understanding that there is always a something else to learn. It was ingrained in me that as smart as I may ever be, someone taught me what I know. There is always something to learn from everyone we meet. I suppose it was this repetitive teaching that has kept me hungry for wisdom and knowledge.

  11. iLove to eat More Word

    27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

    28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

    29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

    31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

    ***No one has the right to boast in the work of God with the Word being so straightforward. God doesn’t pick the strong and mighty who have no needs, But he picks the weak to confound the strong.

    As I thought and meditated on this concept, I believe God spoke to me and also said, “That also means there is no excuse for the weak.”

    For those who come up with every excuse in the world not to do something for the Lord…too old. too young, too poor, too weak, too sick, and too sad, let’s stand on this Word of God that has been presented here today… God has chosen YOU.

  12. MORE UNITY

    10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
    11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

    One of the foundational truths of church growth is UNITY. We find UNITY assosiated with the growth and increase of the Kingdom of GOD beginning in Acts chapter 2. However, likewise we witness the demise and destruction of the Kingdom of GOD where division is.

    Contentions are more natural than UNITY. This resulting as the fall of man. The selfishness of sin is revealed when there are contentions among us. The promotion of self will, self idea, or even self preference create contentions when we go against the UNITY of the church.

    For this reason we have initiated the covenants of The POFW. The Discipleship Covenant, The Leadership Covenant and The Ministry Covenant. A covenant is an agreement between parties, while we operate in agreement we present the foundation for truth in UNITY.

    The MORE UNITY we creat the MORE Truth we produce. May GOD help us to lay aside all malice, strife, indifferences, contentions and divisions that the church of JESUS may be strengthened and the Kingdom of GOD glorified.

  13. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

    After the many miracles between exodus from Egypt and settling down in the promised land the people demanded a king. They wanted a physical king and ruler, someone with a name and a face. 1 Sam 8:19 “Nevertheless, the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, “No, but there shall be a king over us, 20that we also may be like all the nations, that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.” So intent on being like the nations surrounding them.

    Jesus, after all the miracles, signs and wonders, was not visible anymore. The people needed to learn from Paul the apostle, and those appointed to preach. The people still want a king, with wisdom of words. We are not to be intent with the things, and wisdom of this world. This is what Paul is teaching here. It’s about who is being taught. Is it worldly wisdom and philosophy? Or Jesus Christ crucified, death, burial and resurrection? Is it oneness, or trinity? Is it sepereation or once saved always? Is it holiness or loose living?

  14. 8 He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. 9 God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says… (NLT)

    He will keep you strong! During the struggles of the crazy place we’ll call life, God is continually there! Through Him we are made strong and overcomers. The work He is doing within us, won’t be complete until the day the Lord comes!

    “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Phil 1:6

    Just like the statement, you’re never to old to learn something new. We should daily be editing and modifying our lives to glorify Him name. To better ensure understanding of the true meanings, and to live pure and holy lives.

    “For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return.” Phil 1:10

  15. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
    We must not let the devil cause divisions among us,we must have a leader and follow his lead to be successful! Everyone going in different directions will cause a church to fail in being soul winners. People that come in can feel if we are divided or all in one accord in our purpose.God forbid that our carnel nature would hinder some soul in need of something from God to leave the same way they came!
    Lord help us all to work together and do our part in the body of Christ!

  16. He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into fellowship with his son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1‬:‭8-9‬ NET)

    We serve a faithful God! He will never leave us nor forsake us! In every thing we go through, and all the changes we make in our life he remains the same! Thank you Jesus for being such a faithful God!

  17. I Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    11 For it heath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

    United we win! Divided we fall!

    When we are united in one accord, we have the same vision, the same goal. We pray, encourage, love and carry one another. No matter what we are going through in our lives we are there for each other as brothers in Christ. We should have the spiritual mentality and attitude, that your battles! Are my battles!, your struggles! Are my struggle! Your victories! Are my victories! But the moment we let division enter, it could weaken and even destroy us. The moment we get careless, overconfident, prideful of who we are, opens the door to envy, quarrel, anger, resentment within each other. Remember to be Humble because we were saved because of God’s Grace and Mercy and so God could be lifted up. More UNITY!

  18. 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (MSG)
    Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, to chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everthing that we have – right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start – comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”

    I just want to blow a trumpet for God and say, “HALLELUJAH, Thank You JESUS for saving me. For giving me a clean slate and a fresh start and for right thinking and right living.”

    When I think about the Lord
    How he saved me
    How he raised me
    How he filled me to the uttermost
    How he filled me with the Holy Ghost
    How he picked me up and turned me around
    How he placed my feet on solid ground.

    It makes me want to shout
    HALLELUJAH, Thank You JESUS
    Lord you’re worthy of all of the glory, and all the honour, and all the praise.

    It makes me want to shout!

  19. A perfectly joined team of believers, and with one mind & accord………….

    10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
    _____________________________________________________________
    Take a look at this; God doesn’t choose his team as this world does! He calls all those people that the world has rejected or despised. God picks his team not by how many degrees you have nor how much money you have, or even any type of political or social standards. He is God, and loves to prove it! His standard is much different from this world’s. He assigns kings, by observing the inward parts of the heart, and the character traits, and I’m sure he sees the potential in each of us. When he sees his Son/Word in us, 1 John 4:4, Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world., “Church our potential is endless” and yet to be determined…………
    “UNDER Construction”……………………….

    24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

    25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

    27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

    “Clay still on the Wheel”……………………………………………………………………….

  20. vss.10.
    Paul rebuked them for following only their favorite preachers. ( What Paul is really saying is…..
    ” GROW UP PEOPLE “. The scriptures encourage us to develop into mature Christians and not to remain as spiritual infants.

    A Pastor is never thrilled at rebuking the people whom he leads. According to scripture his greatest joy comes in seeing GOD’S Church the body fully dedicate our lives to GOD , trusting GOD, growing spiritually , and a strong relationship with GOD.

    A church that is weak in doctrine or holiness
    ( carnality) cannot have true revival true numerical growth. Though some churches that are not spiritually strong seem to have numerical growth is called swelling and in the natural when there is swelling in the body its an occurrence of some disease. Like for example arthritis , fibromaligia some kind of autoimmune disease.
    So let’s be encouraged today and develop into mature Christians and not remain as spiritual infants.
    In doing this the Church will become a mature strong healthy body of CHRIST , and transpires true growth and not ( swelling and diseased ).
    It will also bring forth true revival as GOD’S WORD has promised us.
    I also want to thank GOD for HIS DIVINE unction AND ANOINTING upon our Pastor, Preacher, … Our watchman on the wall that proclaims the TRUTH and helps us grow and prepare for eternity.
    Preaching may seem foolish to nonbelievers but in hearing and obeying the preached WORD OF GOD WILL SAVE US.
    The hopeless and spiritually hungry person gladly receives the preached WORD OF GOD.

    MORE PREACHING
    MORE HEARING
    MORE UNITY
    MORE OBEYING
    MORE GROWTH
    MORE REVIVAL

  21. 1 Corinthians 1:30

    It is because of him that you are (I am) in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God- that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.

    It is because of him that we I am saved. He could of choose anyone, be he chose us to be saved and live a righteousness life, not to glorify our selves but to glorify God for his mercy and love for saving me.
    I don’t have a degree, wisdom or knowledge but he didn’t look for that when he saw me (many of us) he choose us for a purpose and is to be united as one body (as a church) so that we can stand strong and be united with the vision of the leaders in our church. Some of us came to this church in different ways, different callings, but together we can united in wisdom with our leaders for the same vision for the Glory of God and to preach (out reach) the souls that need redemption.

    Meaning of:
    Redemption word group is used to refer both to deliverance from sin and freedom from captivity.

  22. The letter begins exhorting God and establishing Paul as the writter.

    2 Corinthians 1:12
    Paul’s Integrity
    For our proud confidence is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you.

    Pauls confidence is in his concious and holiness. It is expressed sith sincerity. There is no doubt that Paul had high standards. He was a Pharisee. It would not be uncommon for him to continue his strict life, especially for his witness to Jews. Likewise, we should honor our testimony with our hokiness from God. It is our confidence in witnessing.

  23. “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.” God’s (Jesus) ways are not like the worlds. God will use those that are humble, whereas the deceiver (satan) will use those that are prideful. All the more why one would be wise not to become full of self (haughty). What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  24. 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

    Everyone must understand who Jesus is. God is not the author of confusion. As Christians we must declare the goodness of God. We should not be deceived by this world. God has called us to stand together, no matter what may come against us.

  25. God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

  26. 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    It is not by the power of the flesh, but by his Spirit.

    Though the Lord uses us in the work of the Kingdom it is by the power of the Holy Ghost.

    There is more for us to do!

  27. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

    18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

    Praise God for the power of the preached word! To the saved it is more knowledge, more wisdom & more understanding! While sadly to some, it is foolishness. However, the more anointed our worship, the more of his presence we experience, and this is what makes the difference to a guest who would have otherwise left unchanged.

  28. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

    31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord

    It is not about us is about Him. He found pleasure and blessed us even we do not deserved us, or I deserve it. But to my God be the glory and honor to not worship or praise ourselves the way we worshipped , or served Him or acknowledge Him.
    Again to my God be the glory because I probably I do not quealify to received mercy.
    Alleluya!

  29. 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

    31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
    The wisdom, talents and other gifts that God gives us is not our own doing. God deserves all the glory and honor its because of him we have what we have.

  30. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

    23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

    What are we seeking?

    Does God look at us as a spoiled brat wanted more and more but never listening to a word he says? We all want to see the signs and wonders but how desperate are we for his word?

    God help us to value and long for your word More and More this year.

    I need his word!

  31. I love that we serve a great mighty God who even in His weakness, He is always greater than us. We can safely put our faith in Him!

    25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

  32. Rich Life

    4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

    5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

    6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

    A rich life is one enriched in Christ. It is one affirmed in Him and built up in Him not just at certain times but continually. We must both guard ourselves from negative influence as well as be jealous of our time with God so that we may have His influence daily renewed. When our living is not our own but His life revealed in us, that is the rich, abundant life of our heritage in Christ.

    John 10:10
    The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

  33. 1 Corinthians 1:31 Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.” (NLT)

    That no flesh shall glory… God has very interesting ways to humble people and show his true majestic glory. We can’t even breathe on our own. He, The Lord, owns it all. It is by him that we live. There is nothing we can do without Him. He owns all the resources even our lives. Our accomplishments are simply His. And we should always give Him the glory for anything he allows us to participate in. The Glory is Yours Lord! You did a great thing. I’m glad to be a vessel that you can use for your Honor and glory

  34. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    We can do nothing effective for the kingdom without unity. Unity keeps the church whole as it presses towards the vision God gives Pastor. Unity is as powerful as anointing!

  35. I need MORE knowledge God and MORE of your WORD and MORE of you.That’s all I need nothing else just to be in your arms and in your presence God ,An winning attitude will get me through battles!! IN JESUS NAME !!

    Matthew 11:6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me !!

    Colossians 1:17 And he is before all things

  36. I need MORE knowledge God and MORE of your WORD and MORE of you.That’s all I need nothing else just to be in your arms and in your presence God ,An winning attitude will get me through battles!! IN JESUS NAME !!

    Matthew 11:6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me !!

  37. 31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

    Amen. Enough said.
    Dont follow or be concieded on man, us etc.

  38. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    The power of unity can be found when everyone is on the same page, living out the same vision, working for the same mission and purpose. Unity is a power tool and the enemy does his best to destroy. If one person is out of sync it can change the end result of the entire body. We must be unified to accomplish what God has called us to do.

  39. 1 Corinthians 1 New Living Translation (NLT)
    2 I am writing to God’s church in Corinth,[a] to you who have been called by God to be his own holy people. He made you holy by means of Christ Jesus,[b] just as he did for all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours.
    7 Now you have every spiritual gift you need as you eagerly wait for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. 9 God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

    The Wisdom of God
    18 The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God. 19 As the Scriptures say,
    “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise
    and discard the intelligence of the intelligent.”[e]
    30 God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. 31 Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”

    I CRY OUT TO YOU JESUS, TO HELP US NOT BE FOOLISH TO OUR OWN WAYS, BUT ONLY SEE WHAT YOU SEE AND DO WHAT YOU WOULD DO.
    Our children are failing because we choose not to lead them in Jesus steps instead baby steps to destruction help us all Lord to only seek you in everything we will do, Your time is near and the prescience is getting stronger, we have got to put our foot down we have to stand our ground Satan doesn’t have legs to stand on so he is moving on our children first, we have got to PRAY we have to READ THE WORD and we HAVE TO FAST or this world will be coming to an end sooner than we think, the signs are all around us but some want to be foolish in their ways and make believe that its because this and that. WE HAVE TO SPREAD THE WORD EVERYWHERE WE GO and EVERYONE WE TALK TO. ITS NOT A JOKE ITS NOT A GAME GOD IS REAL AND HIS POWER GREAT IT IS MORE POWERFUL THAN ANYONE CAN EVER IMAGINE. BRING ALL YOUR SAINTS HOME THANK YOU JESUS THANK YOU JESUS, I WORSHIP YOU I LOVE YOU.

  40. Corinthians 1:26 borthets and sisters think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards noir mnany were influential not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and despised things and the things that are not to nullify the things that are so that no one may boat before him.

  41. More unity!

    9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    If we are not in unity things fall apart it is amazing the things that can be acheived if we have unity! It is foolish for us to think that we can walk around doing our own thing and still think that God gets the glory. We have to realize that God is the only reason that we are able to be here. We need to unify with our vision and actions that we might bring glory to God!

  43. Wisdom !!!! 30. But of him are ye in Christ Je’-sus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: Jer. 23 : 5 31. That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. Jer. 9 : 23 Thank you Jesus for loving me.
