Christ Crucified (edited)

18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”

20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. 22For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (ESV)

Christ Crucified by Lou Fellingham

Who could understand the depth of Your plan, to bring sinners home?
Will we ever know the size of the cost? The shame of the cross?
So foolish to human wisdom but to Your children it’s life and power

We preach Christ crucified
Itʼs the only way for souls to be saved who have gone astray
We preach Christ raised to life and now He reigns
Interceding for us till He comes again

Self sufficient ways run through our veins, fighting Your grace
But Your grace invades, stronger than flesh, demanding a change
So foolish to human wisdom but to Your children it’s life and power

It has the power to break in
And wash away every sin
The only hope for our generation
One day He will come again
And life will truly begin
Restored to how we were meant to be
