Are you stupid enough for Love?
Is Gods wisdom different from ours?
Is Gods definition of Love the same as that of a human?
Could it be that weak things in this world shame the strong to cause them to depend on Jesus?
Please read 1 Corinthians 1:26-31
Are you wise by human standards? Perhaps I should use the word knowledgeable as opposed to wise but either way if you are a spiritual path may well be very difficult for you.
According to this passage:
“God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of this world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things- and the things that are not- to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him.”
What does this mean?
To me it means that Jesus who came as a commoner made the wise foolish. He didn’t come to set up some elaborate kingdom here as the kingdom of God is in your heart. The Love that he showed was the weak thing that still shames the strong. No one can boast before Him because we are not under law and all my righteousness comes from Him. What do I have to boast about? Nothing!
In short Gods ways and my ways are not the same and a whole lot of the time His ways will leave you scratching your head and if that’s not ok with you then oh well. I don’t need to know everything right now. ALL I need to do is focus on Love.
So here is an all powerful God who Loved His only Son but He sent him to Love the enemies of Them both. A God that knew that His only Son would be horribly and in the most cruel way killed and sacrificed for people who hated Him and this God could have stopped it at any time and His Son at one point begged Him to stop it but They still both went through with it because they Loved those enemies that much.
If the above statement doesn’t make sense to you congratulations you are human. If it has to make sense to you in order for you to accept it then good luck because this is the kind of Love that makes the human mind think- “What on earth are you thinking?”
That’s just the point they weren’t thinking on earth but on heaven!
