It seems like I’m publishing on this blog for three days straight and I’m going to see how it’s going to work out in the school year. This is just me giving you guys a heads up in case you don’t see a post in its usual time. If you don’t see a post at all during one of these days, then I’m probably too swamped with classwork to write a blog post. I’m going to try my best though.
1 Corinthians 2 (NLT)
There’s only one section in this chapter called Paul’s Message of Wisdom. Throughout this passage, he talks about how he would spread the gospel to different groups of people. It was only until I personally started studying this did I realize how faithful Paul is. He stated that he would forget about everything else except for Jesus Christ. To approach people, he approached them humbly – “timid and trembling”. Paul solely relied on The Holy Spirit to guide him in his sermons, using plain and simple words because he wanted us to trust in God’s words rather than his words (human’s words). Yet he changes his way of speaking when he’s talking to those who are more mature than others with regards to spirituality. He speaks with wisdom, but not intelligently. He speaks with “the mystery of God – his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it our ultimate glory before the world began.” That may mean he spoke about God’s salvation, but in the next sentence, he said that if they understood that then they wouldn’t have crucified Jesus Christ.
