Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 October 8

“For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God” 
(1 Corinthians 1:22-24).

Today’s Morsel:  I’m sure many of you, like me, at one time or another have just been walking along and suddenly you just stumbled and fell.  You get up, and you see nothing that gives you any indication for your falling.  Now some folks will say, well the devil tripped me.  Through the study of God’s word, I do see in many instances where Satan uses his sly and cunning forte to cause the people of God to fall, and he will continue to do so.  Therefore, we must be sober and vigilant to ensure that he doesn’t.  Paul states that they preached Jesus Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.  Notice, Jesus Christ is both the power and the wisdom of God.  Therefore, He is omnipotent (Matthew 28:18) and omniscience (John 1:48).   If we do not get a clear understanding of who Christ is, and to what purpose he died, then this gospel can become a stumbling block to us as well.  Make your calling and election sure so you do not trip and fall.  

Sing: Falling in love with Jesus!  Falling in love with Jesus! Falling in love with Jesus is the best thing I ever, ever done. In His arms, I feel protected.  In His arms, I’m never disconnected.  In His arms, I feel protected, there’s no place I rather, rather be. Falling in love with Jesus! Falling in love with Jesus! Falling in love with Jesus is the best thing I ever, ever done.


Thought For Today:  Be sober and alert so you don’t fall.
