Do you ever wonder why more people don’t believe in Jesus? In 1 Corinthians 1:18, Paul points out a harsh reality.

The Apostle Paul says this in 1 Corinthians chapter 1 verse 18. For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.

This is what we see in life, isn’t it? How many people rail against the gospel of Christ and say it’s nonsense. "What you believe is ridiculous." "It’s fairy tales!"

The wisdom of the world says that if you do well, if you do all the right things, then you will be rewarded. And that’s the way the universe works. It’s karma, isn’t it?

And yet the cross goes kaboom across all of our good deeds, across all of our bad deeds, and says, right, that’s it, you are now right with God if you accept Christ, if you accept what he did for us.

The thing that we don’t like is that we have to surrender our sovereignty. We have to let go, say, I can’t do it and let God take over. And that just sounds like complete foolishness to the world, doesn’t it?

It is reasonable to give a defence for our faith. But there is no point trying to persuade people that God is, and Jesus is, who he says he is. People are saved by the working of the Holy Spirit. People are saved by letting go of their autonomy, and that is very difficult for anyone to do. So if we’re going to pray anything, we should pray this: that the Holy Spirit will intervene in people’s lives, that He will use the words of Christ spoken through us. And that He will change and transform hearts.

Holy Spirit, we understand that the message of the gospel does seem like foolishness to those around us. Please use us in your mission to save lives, to save souls, to transform and convert people from dead people into alive people who are in a relationship with the living God. Amen.
