Thought for Monday 20th September
(from Rev E. Foggitt)
“To those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ [is] the power of God and the wisdom of God.”
The apostle Paul had not long before been in Athens, where his preaching of the gospel at the Areopagus - according to Luke in Acts 17:32-34 - had met with disdain and sneering. Now, down the road in Corinth he preaches the same message: if and when God calls us, we discover the power of God to transform us; and only when we give up trying in our own strength do we discover his power in our weakness.
Reflection: Will you let go, and let God?
