Boast in the Lord
Colorado Springs, the new Corinth?. How are we like the people in Corinth? "The Jews demand signs and the Greeks look for wisdom" Pastor Greg compared these two cities in a sermon a few weeks back. We have our universities and people of knowledge in this modern day, too. So, do we change our message to please these minds?
Paul says he preached Christ crucified. God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise.
The Jews did not want to hear of Christ. a stumbling block to their religious teachings. They were stuck on doing things to be righteous. Who are these in our Colorado Springs? Greg did not bring this out in his sermon but it makes me think of many who also look for signs to ratify others as Christians. A place I have been as well. We look for those who make the check list of politics. Abortion, guns, gay marriage, evolution, undocumented aliens, tattoos, gaming, America and everything Republican are opinions. (The list goes on) These do not preach Christ and Him crucified. Maybe to reach out we need to be more like Paul.
"Therefore, as it is written, the one who boasts boast in the Lord."
