Transcript

  • 1. For  consider  your  calling,  brothers:  not  many  of   you  were  wise  according  to  worldly  standards,   not  many  were  powerful,  not  many  were  of   noble  birth.  But  God  chose  what  is  foolish  in  the   world  to  shame  the  wise;  God  chose  what  is   weak  in  the  world  to  shame  the  strong;  God   chose  what  is  low  and  despised  in  the  world,   even  things  that  are  not,  to  bring  to  nothing   things  that  are,  so  that  no  human  being  might   boast  in  the  presence  of  God.    
  • 2. And  because  of  him  you  are  in  Christ  Jesus,  who   became  to  us  wisdom  from  God,  righteousness   and  sancBficaBon  and  redempBon,  so  that,  as  it   is  wriDen,  “Let  the  one  who  boasts,  boast  in  the   Lord.”   1  Corinthians  1:26-­‐31  (ESV)

  • 4. For  the  word  of  the  cross  is  folly  to  those  who   are  perishing,  but  to  us  who  are  being  saved  it  is   the  power  of  God.    For  it  is  wriDen,   “I  will  destroy  the  wisdom  of  the  wise,          and  the  discernment  of  the  discerning  I  will   thwart.”   1  Cor.  1:18-­‐19  
  • 5. “Historic  Kruidenier  Home    Set  to  be  Demolished”     •  First  home  built  in  Southern  Hills  (1960)   •  The  exterior  brick  is  the  same  as  that  used  on   the  Museum  of  Modern  Art  in  New  York  City.   •  Gathering  place  for  local  arBsts,  acBvists,  and   business  leaders  and  famous  guests  like   Ginger  Rogers,  Arthur  Ashe,  Dick  Van  Dyke,   and  Al  Gore.  
  • 6. But  God  chose  what  is  foolish  in  the  world  to  shame   the  wise;  God  chose  what  is  weak  in  the  world  to   shame  the  strong;  God  chose  what  is  low  and   despised  in  the  world,  even  things  that  are  not,  to   bring  to  nothing  things  that  are,  so  that  no  human   being  might  boast  in  the  presence  of  God.  And   because  of  him  you  are  in  Christ  Jesus,  who  became   to  us  wisdom  from  God,  righteousness  and   sancBficaBon  and  redempBon,  so  that,  as  it  is   wriDen,  “Let  the  one  who  boasts,  boast  in  the   Lord.”   1  Corinthians  1:27-­‐31  (ESV)
