Read 1 Corinthians 1:29
This verse is almost laughable. I mean, I seriously chuckled within, but then, I got sad. You see, there are people boasting before God. I’m thinking now of both prominent and lesser known atheists. I’m thinking of the atheist billboards that have popped up all over the country. I’m thinking of movements that call themselves, pride. And, I’m shaking my head because I know a terribly painful fall is coming. There’s no way we can boast in the presence of the Almighty God without suffering deep consequences.
As much as these people think they know, His Word says their wisdom is foolish. God will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7). His truth will stand no matter how much deception infiltrates the planet and the church. Yes friends, there’s deception in the church and the enemy’s no moron, he’s sneaky and often dwells in half-truths or those that sound good but have nearly imperceptible deviations from His Word.
Father, help us be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Keep us in our place, that we’d never boast before You. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
