TUESDAY, September 19

1 Corinthians 1:24-26 But to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength. Consider your own call, brothers and sisters: not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.

How big is God? The question itself can hardly be contained within the confines of our human minds. But if we can’t grasp the gravity and enormity of the question, what hope do we have of accessing the grace and love available to us?

Fortunately for us, God, out of infinite wisdom and measureless love, has been made manifest in Jesus Christ. God knew we needed an enfleshed example of love to walk among us in order to see the light, truth, and way to God, to show us how we might come into the kingdom. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord” (Isaiah 55:8). And we are tremendously blessed that this is so.

MOVING FORWARD: Consider your own call. How is Jesus inviting you to participate in sharing his gospel?
