As there are divisions happening in the church, Paul explains that the only thing any one of us can boast in is Jesus. It’s got nothing to do with who we are, who led us to the Jesus, how smart we are, or what position in society we hold.
I am so grateful about that! I have friends – well educated – and to them believing in Jesus is very foolish, others have seen or heard of miracles (signs) and still don’t believe. Jesus dying for my sins really is not reasonable, but as Paul says in verse 24 “Christ is the wisdom and power of God” and my faith can rest on nothing else but this.
Lord thank you that the Gospel is so simple, my faith in Jesus. Help me not to get carried away with the latest favourite teacher or church or such but to remember that Jesus is the only one that I should be boasting in.
