The bible is foolishness to those who are perishing.

Sadly my family has stopped reading my blog. I may have done what I wanted instead of what my Lord had in mind. I just wanted to know if anything in the bible made sense to them.

For the message of God 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.”

1 Corinthians 1:18-19

Glory only in the Lord

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put shame on the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God–and righteousness and sanctification and redemption–that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”

So my prayers have changed recently not to Lord please convert my loved ones and others. They don’t deserve it as none of us do, to have the gift of eternal life you have given them. Your sacrifice on the cross, your death, and resurrection covered our sins. We must truly repent and ask for forgiveness. Until then we have nothing.

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that he might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people zealous for good works. (Titus 2:11-15)

Are you of His people? Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Are you an adopted son or daughter?

As He says also in Hosea :

“I will call them My
people, who were not
My people,
And her beloved, who
was not beloved.
And it shall come to
pass in the place where
it was said to them,

‘You are not My people,’
There they shall be called
sons of the living God.”

I believe God. I believe He reveals us to the wise and foolish in many ways. I believe ungodly people sense His love in us and reject us as they rejected Him. We don’t even have to say a word. They hate the light and prefer the darkness.

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was the life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. (John 1:3-5)

And the darkness still does not comprehend it. So it is to the life or to the darkness. I have been chosen for life, by nothing of myself. So where are you to be drawn to Jesus Christ, the life and the light, by God the Father? You cannot know one without the other. If you love the world you do not belong to God. (1 John 2:15)
