1 Corinthians 1:26–31 - [26] For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. [27] But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; [28] God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, [29] so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. [30] And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, [31] so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” (ESV)


Consider your Calling…. vv. 26a

Consider who you are.  Consider what it means to be born-again.  Consider what it means to be Christ’s.

Consider your Choosing – vv. 26b-29

The CALL TO SALVATION is not based on wisdom, power, or nobility.

A call to salvation is a call from worldly wisdom and understanding

The world offers nothing – The Gospel offers EVERYTHING

The world says

The Gospel says

SO THAT we have nothing to boast in…except Grace.

Questions to consider:

Consider your Conversion (the Gospel) – vv. 30-31




Ephesians 4:1–7 – [1] I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, [2] with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, [3] eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. [4] There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—[5] one Lord, one faith, one baptism, [6] one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. [7] But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. (ESV)
