What Kind of Fool Are You???

What Kind of Fool Are You???
Psalm 14:1The Godless Fool…
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
Romans 1:20-25 The Idol Worshiping Fool…
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.                                                                                                            21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24-25 So God said, in effect, “If that’s what you want, that’s what you get.” It wasn’t long before they were living in a pigpen, smeared with filth, filthy inside and out. And all this because they traded the true God for a fake god, and worshiped the god they made instead of the God who made them—the God we bless, the God who blesses us… Who is forever praised. Amen.
I Corinthians 1:18-25 The Self Glorifying Fool…
18 For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are                                                                  being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,                                                                                                                                                                      and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”
20Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe. 22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, 23 but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
Paul will write to the Church at Corinth that trusting the foolishness of God that is wiser than human wisdom and the weakness of God that is stronger than human strength makes you a special kind of fool… Paul says he is a Fool for Christ
We are fools for the sake of Christ, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute. I Corinthians 4:10
April 1st is of course… April Fool’s Day… It is also Easter Sunday – The day we celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection for the Salvation of the world… So, What kind of fool are you?
