Journal Entry ~ 11/19/19
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. - 1 Corinthians 1:18
The world screams at us that our beliefs are folly, that our faith is foolishness. We need to be reminded again and again of His presence and His power for our faith to remain strong. We understand why when we read this verse - the world is blind.
As I read these verses, I am reminded of our need for corporate worship, of our need to gather for church and small group. He calls us to corporate worship because He knows we need the humble reminder to be thankful for the amazing gift He has given us. He knows we need to encouragement from one another to continue to fight the good fight.
When we gather together, His presence is tangible and undeniable...but when we get out into the world, the darkness can take over. It's awesome that He designed a plan to draw us together to remind us of His love and His mercy when the world is mocking us. As we sit together in corporate worship, our hearts fill with with gratitude because we are reminded that grace isn't foolishness. No, it's the foundation of our hope.
Press on ~ you are loved 💗
