1 Corinthians 1:26-31 NIV
“Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many 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 the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.””
In ancient times (the 80’s and 90’s) we used to use maps to navigate to places that we’d never been. With the rise of GPS and increasingly reliable cell phone signals we became dependent on our phones to tell us where we are, where we’re going and what time we’ll get there. It’s pretty amazing.
While we may have opinions about the accuracy of different navigation apps, we put our faith in them to get us where we need to go, based on our experience of using them.
Can you imagine taking a trip out of state to someplace you’ve never been without using your phone?
Take a few minutes to make a list of the things that you put your faith in. That you depend on.
This week, we’re going to look at the idea that the power of faith is instrumental in our ability to believe God’s truth.
Dear God, thank You for Your provision for us. Thank You for choosing me. This week, open my eyes, ears and heart to see how faith helps me believe Your truth. I pray that You would provide the opportunity to talk about it with other Christians. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
