Christ As God's Wisdom And Power For Correcting Divisions: 1 Corinthians 2

Theme: Christ is the wisdom of God...

1. For correcting moral problems (1-6)
     A. Divisions (1:10-4:21)

Having shown that boasting about the leadership, ceremonies, or "wisdom" of men creates divisions, chapter one presented Christ as the only wisdom which results in salvation from the penalty, power, or presence of sin. With this in mind, chapter two continues to direct believer's focus to the wisdom of God in Christ (1-5). Unsaved people are not able to understand this wisdom (indeed, it seems "foolish" to them), since God only reveals it to believer's minds through the indwelling Holy Spirit (6-16).

The Gospel

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone, not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess. 1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the glory (Eph. 2:8-9).


The grand purpose of creation is to bring glory and pleasure to God in Christ (Eph. 1:1-10; Rev. 4:11). The gospel of Christ's death and resurrection for our sins, achieves this goal by magnifying God's grace and mercy towards undeserving sinners. The purpose of faithguard, is to glorify God, by defending and confirming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
