People who do what is wrong hate the light and don’t come to the light. They don’t want their actions to be exposed. But people who do what is true come to the light so that the things they do for God may be clearly seen.
Scripture says, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise. I will reject the intelligence of intelligent people.” The world with its wisdom was unable to recognize God in terms of His own wisdom. So God decided to use the nonsense of the Good News we speak to save those who believe. God’s nonsense is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
We have been set apart as holy because Jesus Christ did what God wanted Him to do by sacrificing His body once and for all. Every day each priest performed his religious duty. He offered the same type of sacrifice again and again. Yet, these sacrifices could never take away sins. However, this Chief Priest made one sacrifice for sins, and this sacrifice lasts forever. Now He holds the honored position—the one next to God the Father on the heavenly throne.
God has called you to stand out and not blend in with the rest of the world! Only in Christ will you find your true identity.
