Devotionary is a new podcast that is designed to make the Bible accessible and applicable to everyday life. It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

In 1 Corinthians 1:26-31, the apostle Paul reminds his readers of their privileged position as God’s chosen people, but he also reminds them that it had nothing to do with them. In other words, God had not chosen them because they deserved it. They had not earned His favor or worked their way into His good graces. Paul describes them as having been weak, foolish, low, and despised. It was because of Christ that they had access into God’s presence. Their faith in Christ was the sole reason they enjoyed a right standing with God. There was no reason for them to boast in their own merit. Their right to come into God’s presence was because they had received the righteousness of Christ.
