1Corinthians Chapter One -- The Cult of Personality and the Powerless Cross

By       (Page 4 of 4 pages)   No comments

The final point is about letting him who boasts, boast only in the Lord. God will not share His glory beloved. Those Bethel declarations included declaring that we are responsible for securing the reward for Christ. It is the oldest sin. It is Lucifer in heaven ascending to the throne of the Most High. It is Eve thinking the fruit will make her like God. But He uses the foolish to confound the wise because He will not share His glory. Think of Gideon! 32,000 men in his army were too many to face the hundred thousand coming against them because God said that He will not have anyone claim His glory! He whittled that number down to 300 men who then defeated the massive opposing force but none could claim the victory belonged to anyone but God.

What a fitting way to end the first chapter of First Corinthians. A reminder of the supremacy of Christ to begin a letter to a church that had forgotten. A church that had turned to listen to the wisdom of men instead of the Word of God and in doing so were emptying the cross of the power it has to save mankind. What a stark reminder and visual for us as we continue to try and discern what is false from what is right. We have seen the Bible refer to false teaching as waterless rain clouds and barren fig trees but now we have one that should hit closer to home -- powerless crosses. Say no to the cult of personality beloved and get back to the only thing that has the power of God unto the salvation of man -- the Gospel.
