Passage: 1 Corinthians 1:21

Preaching Christ

…the only message that will do sinners any good

“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” (1 CORINTHIANS 1:21)

“It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” The word translated ‘preaching’ puts the emphasis on the content of what is preached. The ‘foolishness’ that is preached is Christ or ‘the cross’, the doctrine of Christ crucified. Christ is what sinners need. If they will not have him, there is nothing else good to give them. Consequently, there is no value in giving them something else. I say to all who preach the gospel, ‘Pour on the coal! Preach the sovereign, unchangeable Christ to sinners. Flood them with the “truth as it is in Jesus” until they either shout “crucify him” or “my Lord and my God”.
