Title: Christ, the power and wisdom of God

Bible verse: 1 Corinthians 1: 24

.… but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, [we preach] Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Message: Let us proclaim the power of God and His wisdom.


  • The gospel is the message of the cross, which is a reference to the redeeming power of the death of Jesus Christ.
  • Faith is a gift of God. Election has its source in the mysterious will of God.
  • Christ is the power of God, because God Himself is present in Him. We can directly experience this power in word and sacrament.
  • Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God, because He grants us knowledge of the triune God, the plan of salvation, and the way leading to salvation.
