For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. – 1 Corinthians 1:21 (NIV)
The pattern of Scripture is clear: God takes things that we think are foolish and uses them to change the world. In a day of twitter, Facebook, and multiple other methods of communication, the Scripture tells us that God uses preaching to display His goodness. Does this seem old fashioned? God will use the face-to-face passion of preaching to open hearts, change lives and proclaim His purposes for the earth.
