I Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power
Have you ever experienced the kingdom of God? Have you ever experienced the power?
Maybe we get only the "power" that we need:
For, I think, God has exhibited us apostles last of all, as men condemned to death; because we have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.
We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are prudent in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are distinguished, but we are without honor.
To this present hour we are both hungry and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated, and are homeless;and we toil, working with our own hands; when we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure;when we are slandered, we try to conciliate; we have become as the scum of the world, the dregs of all things, even until now.
I do not write these things to shame you, but to admonish you as my beloved children.
Faith allows God to show up in power. Comfort, ease and entertainment don't require His presence nor His power!
Which will you choose?
