Paul invites us to transfer the weight of God’s secret wisdom, as the only way to avoid both of Sarah Connor’s follish extremes. Fe people have ever been aware of the coming Judgment Day as Paul himself, yet he never allowed this reality to crush him…
The irony of what Paul tells us in this chapter (1 Cor 3) is that we become like Sarah Connor by understanding the Gospel too little, not too much. We grasp the greatness of judgment day but not the greatness of the Saviour.
