The Cross is Wisdom and Power

"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate. (Is. 29:14)

Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the fooolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength."

1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (NIV)

Sometimes there is nothing to add. Here is a bit of art I did in my bible over the above scriptures.
Thanks for dropping by. May you experience the love of God in your life today and may you know that you are beautiful and you are loved.

Blessing hugs,
