Letters of Paul #LetsGo – Tyler Gay
Last week and this week have been crazy! I been in and out of the doctor’s office and we finally figured out that I have a pinched nerve. Wednesday was Tim’s (Tyler’s Dad) birthday, Thursday was Thanksgiving, and Friday was Amber B-day.
Well this week I started to read the letters of Paul in the New Testament. One of my favorite verses is
1 Corinthians 1:17
- For Christ sent me not to baptize, BUT TO PREACH THE GOSPEL: not with wisdom of words, last the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
Then Paul tell us that God is wiser and stronger then any man. I like how Paul puts it:
1 Corinthians 1:25
- Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
I also really like 1 Corinthians 2:1
- And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
I love these verses because growing up I always thought you had to be super wise, a good reader, writer and speaker to be a pastor. I like how Paul tells the church of God in Corinth and us also that you don’t need to be wise all you need is God’s Spirit in you and He will teach you all things by His Word. He will teach us something new on every page from Genesis 1:1 though Revelation 22:21!
I got 13 days but I have had a lot of fun here and I can’t wait to do it again!
Tyler Gay yea that’s me
