Call to Confession: 1 Corinthians 2:1-4; 1:18, 21
"And I, when I came to you, brothers,
did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom.
For I decided to know nothing among you
except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
And I was with you in weakness and in fear
and much trembling, and my speech
and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom,
but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.
"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 since, in the wisdom of God,
the world did not know God through wisdom,
it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe."
Not In Me (Schumacher, Ward)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Assurance of Pardon: 1 Corinthians 1:27-31
"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 sanctification and redemption, so that,
as it is written,
“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”
