Covenant Concepts ~ Moses: God Expects Righteousness

Covenant Concepts ~ Moses: God Expects Righteousness

1 Cor. 1:18-25

God Establishes His Covenant with Moses; in fact, it is His most famous Covenant: The 10 Commandments. What’s different about this particular covenant? God (the Stronger Party) dictates what WE (the weaker party) will and will not do to keep it.

God Frames Relationships With Covenant Concepts

God’s Wisdom is Beyond our Wisdom
1 Cor. 1:18-21

  • v18 BEING saved: it is GOD’s power at work!
  • v19/20 We did not figure salvation out on our own
  • v21 God’s reasoning is that we stop trusting our reasoning to figure out God.

When We Give Up, We Win
1 Cor. 1:22-25

  • v22 signs: God MUST show us power; wisdom: God MUST make sense to us
  • v23 Jesus is NEITHER
  • v24 Christ is power IN weakness; Jesus taught wisdom beyond our experience
  • v25 God is MORE than we can imagine

When we give up, HE Wins (and somehow, we win, too).
