Today’s Promise is 1 Corinthians 1:18, 19 NKJV:
“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,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.'”
I thank God every day for the knowledge of His salvation through the Cross. It’s not by my own goodness or wisdom that I know Jesus as my Savior, but by His Grace. He chose to make Himself known to me, and in so doing, has given me power over sin and death. What a privilege! But not the privilege of lording this knowledge over others. The power of God is love. A love that yearns for the hearts of those who are perishing and prays for them to be drawn to the life-giving message of the Cross. To be drawn into true wisdom.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the Cross, and the power it brings to those who believe. Fill me with the power of the knowledge of the Cross, in Jesus’ name, that many will be drawn to You through the love they witness in me. Amen.
Have a victorious day in the Lord!
