We are highly privileged people for having received the gospel and the grace of God. We are very privileged that this message has reached our ears, this wonderful message that the people who lived under the law did not have the opportunity to listen. And it is that God had prepared all this beforehand for those who love Him.
The apostle Paul speaks about this to the Corinthians, a city that stood out for seeking knowledge and more that they had an eloquent preacher named Apollos, of whom the Bible tells us that he was powerful in the Scriptures and eloquent in words (Acts 18). But Paul again and again made the Corinthians understand that it was not a question of speaking with eloquence and much rhetoric, but that the message of which he spoke went beyond the knowledge that a city like Corinthians sought. And that is why Paul says on one occasion, “I am not ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God.” The gospel is the only message in humanity that has power by itself.
