A Beautiful Mess: A Study of 1 Corinthians – Pt. 7 – Who God Chooses

1 Corinthians 1:26-31, 2:1-5

Three truths from this passage:

1) God chooses.

God is always the initiator.

  • 2 Corinthians 12:9

God is looking for those who know how desperately they need Him.

  • Isaiah 66:1-2

2) God chooses people.

In scripture, God never does anything to advance His redemptive purposes without a human partner.

If there is anything we learn from scripture at all, it’s that God’s passionate desire is to “dwell with man.”

  • Exodus 29:46
  • Ezekiel 37:27
  • Zechariah 2:11
  • Revelation 21:3

 1 Peter 2:9

3) God chooses people that we would never choose.

Notice the three areas in particular that Paul mentions:

  1. Wisdom
  2. Power
  3. Pedigree

4) God chooses people we would never choose so that no one can boast.
