“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“ 1 Corinthians 1:18.
The world understands and values visible power, achievements, talents, money and anything that is of this world. In Christianity we have a completely different value system. Christ was born in a manger. The King of kings and Lord of lords was born that way? Well, what did He achieve? He won eternal victory over enemy of our souls Satan by dying on the cross of Calvary. Wow! To the carnal mind this is really foolishness, but to us who value things differently it is the wisdom of God.
