What Do We Know?

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1Corinthians 1:18 NIV

00384891 The story of Jesus’ death and resurrection seems like foolishness to many. I imagine that if they knew of your faith in Jesus Christ, they would think you a fool. For them, the idea of a dead Jesus risen from the grave is more myth or fairy tale. It’s a nice story, and maybe there is a moral in there somewhere, but that’s about it.

From their perspective, it really doesn’t make any sense to bet your life on a dead Jew, who lived two millennia ago. Sure, he was a good man and a wise teacher. But today people are a lot wiser. We know a lot more. So what Jesus said was okay for the simple-minded people of ancient times, but not for us.

The problem with that line of thinking is it makes our thoughts, our ideas, ourMP900385346[1] personal perspectives the starting point for determining truth. Everything else is judged against what we believe. What arrogance! How could any of us even begin to pretend our ideas are the standard against which all other ideas should be measured.

Fools think they know it all. But what do they really know? That’s the issue raised in today’s thought-provoking video. The most troubling part, is that many don’t even know how wrong they are, and are missing out on the opportunity to have power of God at work in their lives!

Click here to watch the video. Then let the truth that was proven true in the resurrected Jesus be the standard around which you build your life. Trade in foolishness for faith in him who is the Way, the Truth and the Life!
