Foolishness and Faith...

Again the chronology of scripture takes us to the Psalms chapters 50,53,60 and 75. Having just attended evening services at church where I experienced the presence of God as we worshipped with friends and family, I cannot pass up the opportunity to mention this verse from Psalm 53:

1 Only fools say in their hearts,
“There is no God.”

Sadly, it seems that those who are most highly educated are often the same who claim to be agnostic or atheist. The tragedy in this is that God will reveal himself to every person who wants to know the truth, but thinking themselves wise, they have become fools.

My great prayer is that each of you, my grandchildren, will wisely seek Him and trust Christ as Lord. Hear the truth of The Word:

Jeremiah 29: 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you," declares the LORD...

Romans 1: 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

1 Corinthians 1: 26 Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord."
