{1 Corinthians 2:4-5; NLT}
And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit. I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God.

At the bar of common sense Jesus Christ’s statements may seem mad; but bring them to the bar of faith, and you begin to find with awestruck spirit that they are the words of God. Trust entirely in God, and when He brings you to the venture, see that you take it. We act like pagans in a crisis, only one out of a crowd is daring enough to bank his faith in character of God.

Oswald Chambers; My Utmost for His Highest; Dodd, Mead & Company (1935), p. 151

Questions to consider:

  • Why does God’s wisdom seem to go against common sense?
  • How can you increase your faith in God’s character?
  • Why is it important to trust God’s character?
