Oh! We can all be so foolish at times! Thankfully, most of our foolishness leaves only a temporary mark or memory–with maybe just a bit of embarrassment thrown in.
But the greatest act of foolishness, with eternal consequences, we could ever commit is to not put our faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.
In perfect wisdom and boundless love, our Heavenly Father allowed Jesus–the sinless One, His perfect Son–to die for our sins so that we could be brought before our God as righteous, holy and redeemed.
To those who do not yet know the grace and truth of God’s greatest sacrifice, this seems like absolute foolishness! It is too outrageous, too simple!
Jesus Christ chose to die so that my sins–all my sins–would be forgiven!? Yes!
I can live now and for all eternity in an intimately, loving relationship with my Heavenly Father because through the resurrection of Jesus the power of sin and death was trampled forever!? Yes!
How could this be? It doesn’t make sense.
Oh, but it does. To our God.
Jesus–through his death and resurrection–is the very power and wisdom of God! By God’s will. In God’s way.
May we each accept fully God’s foolish wisdom to transform our lives now and for all eternity!
…to those whom God has called, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom…
…Christ Jesus, who has become for us the wisdom of God–that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:24-25,30
