“For I didn’t think it was a good idea to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”
[1 Corinthians 2:2 HCSB]
The best
God guided Paul to stay focused on the core issue – the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as atonement for sin. That is the foundation upon which Paul built that church, and it’s the message he keeps focusing on again and again and again.
John Fowler wrote a wonderful poem inspired by these verses. It has been recorded by a few different artists, and has helped me keep the main thing the main thing.
I’d like to write the songs of songs
Convince you all that you should come along
But I’ll probably never live that long
Still Jesus died for you
I sit around and make up clever lines
And toss them out as they dance through my mind
A sweeter love than His you’ll never find
‘Cause Jesus died for you
The best thing I can tell you is
God loves you
I can say that from my heart, I know it’s truth
The best thing I can tell you is God loves you
And He sent his only Son as living proof
Now I can talk all night till I’m blue in the face
Present my argument and state my case
But I’d rather tell you of His wondrous grace
‘Cause Jesus died for you
Now I can talk about theology
Or dabble in some deep philosophy
But it all comes down to what was done on Calvary
When Jesus died for you
John Fowler, The Best
