Hi Shacksters!


For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached (this phrase is a description of how those of the world estimates the gospel) to save those who believe 1 Corinthians 1:21

I have found that not only does the message of the Gospel sound foolish to the natural mind but, actually all spiritual things true of God.[and us] They are nonsense to the natural mind. They sound like upside down descriptions of things that don't even make much sense to say or think. They sound irrelevant. Unholy. They sound impossible. They are not RECOGNIZED.It sounds like weakness to it in fact.

The fact is that we have these thoughts of futility that do not recognize the miracle who is Christ and what He has done in us. This essentially why we have such a hard time when we listen to that non miraculous voice!! It is part and parcel with our former mind and death! Oh it sounds natural to us only because we were so familiar with it[for it is were we once walked formerly]. But we are called to another mind and to walk in that and with every miracle God is doing in us we stand and walk as ones risen just like Him!
