FINDING THE POWER OF GOD
"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" (I Cor. 1:17).
There are many who are looking to
find the power
in many ways. Some go to seminars, conferences, and other meetings to
find the power
of God. Any time you worship and praise God, and are in
the teaching of the Word of God good things are bound to happen. Looking at
most of the things that we find and declare are the power
outward things. These are the temporal works of the Spirit.
Don't get me wrong. These are important. However, the
works of the Spirit are on the inside of us, and they are much more
important. That is why Paul said, "now to Him who is able to do
exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to
the power that works
in us" (Eph. 3:20).
The other half of this is the message of the cross. For the message of the cross also is "the power of God" (I Cor. 1:17). No wonder Paul determined not to know anything but "Jesus Christ and Him crucified" (I Cor. 2:2). That is where the wisdom of God is. "The power of God" is resident right there (I Cor. 2:5). Look where you want on the outside. The genuine truth that Christ and your mind renewed to the truth of the message of the cross on the inside of you is the resident area to find the power of God! V
