“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”1 Corinthians 1:18
Have you ever Hs that cooked meal which someone made for you that mom made when you were a kid and it did not taste the same? Mine was spaghetti and meatballs. Mom made it special but one day, a friend invited me to his home to spend the night and his mom made spaghetti and meatballs. I looked forward to the dish. Fork in hand and saliva dripping, I took a bite and…. This is not like moms. I trudged through the dish and turned down left overs. It just was not the same.
I have been in revivals, bible conferences, and even missions conferences where the preaching was not like my home pastors messages. He preached the Bible convicting, soul stirring messages that caused me to make a decision for Christ. However, even in those preaching seasons when it was not like my home church, I still looked for a blessing.
However, regardless of the messenger and message, it’s power to us that are saved.
