One of my favorite bumper stickers reads, “I’m a fool for Christ. Whose fool are you?”
It is a reference to Paul’s statement, “We are fools for the sake of Christ, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute.” 1 Corinthians 4:10 .
Paul is speaking of his sacrifice to bring others to faith.
Having Easter fall on April Fools Day this year is especially appropriate. It gives us a lot to chew on with regard to what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. and what it took to get us there.
Easter is a reminder that we belong to God by God’s grace, not our own doing. That sounds like foolishness to many in the world, but to us it is the power of God.
May we be lifted-up to live by God’s grace, and not the world’s judgment.
Let us live fully as people of God, in Jesus Christ!
