The Humble, Audacious, Mind of Christ

Bible Text: 1st Corinthians 1-2 | | November 13, 2022

In our series on wisdom and the mind of Christ, we’ve learned that there’s a strong connection between wisdom and humility. But . . . isn’t humility kind of wimpy? Isn’t it out of fashion in our current culture? This Sunday we’ll hear the Apostle Paul face those questions head on. In the first two chapters of 1 Corinthians, we’ll find out what he has to say about wisdom and weakness and what it means to have the mind of Christ. To Paul, Jesus's humility is not to be confused with weakness or timidity. Following a humble, gentle Jesus into hostile environments takes a great deal of audacity which is only possible in the strength of the Holy Spirit.
