Day 178/260: Read 1 Corinthians 2
Concerning the inspired Word of God, the late B.C. Goodpasture correctly observed that man “could not have produced it if he would. Its contents are beyond the reach of human authorship. He would not have written it if he could. It condemns too many things which men by nature hold dear.”
The apostle Paul explained, “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” The most important book in history was not conceived by man, but by God.
In the Bible, God reveals Himself to man. He reveals “the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.” He reveals His plan and His purpose, His wisdom and His will.
“‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts’” (Isaiah 55:8-9).
Do you want to please God? Read, study, and apply His revelation to your life.
