day no. 13,175: emptying the cross by our clever coolness

1 Corinthians 1:17
"For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to evangelize — not with clever words, so that the cross of Christ will not be emptied of its effect."
It is easy to empty the cross of Christ by adding our coolness or cleverness to it.
People don’t need to think that you’re cool.
They don’t need to think that you’re clever.
They need to worship Jesus for the fullness of what He has done for us.
Do not take away from the completed works of Jesus by adding the stumbling block of your coolness and cleverness to it.
Let the stumbling block of the Cross be enough to trip others up.
