The Bethany Bullet - Week of February 5, 2017

Sermon: “Yeah, But…”

Yeah, but!

Those words mean that one is introducing evidence to counter an earlier hypothesis or is explaining a previous action. 

St Paul's, "yeah but" deals with that which counters fallen reason and understood strength.  You can hear the charges:

"Not very smart to sacrifice yourself for those who rebelled against you right?" 
Yeah but...the cross is the wisdom of God! 

"How mighty can he be if he can be killed upon a tree?" 
Yeah but...the cross is the power of God! 

For through the cross we come to know the depth of God's love and we overcome the enemies we could never have defeated ourselves.

The foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of man and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength; that's why for us the cross is the wisdom of God and the power of God.

-Pastor Kevin Kritzer
