Beyond Understanding Story (1 Corinthians 2)
Kingdom Ambassador – woman, flag, cloud, crown, flame – Paul said we don’t share Jesus in our strength or knowledge. We are humble messengers. We want everyone to experience God and depend upon him.
Hidden Path – closed door, path, Jesus, cloud – The Gospel is a mystery. The world lives by the devil’s polluted logic. Jesus reveals his perfect wisdom to us.
Resist Satan – serpent, cloud, man – Satan lies. He is a deception-weaving tyrant. We learn how to resist him.
Christ’s Spirit – shining dove, crown, flame – Jesus is God’s Truth. The Holy Spirit speaks to our inner spirit. Jesus’ Spirit helps us learn and live by God’s wisdom.
