In the first two chapters of 1 Corinthians we have read the apostle Paul dealing with the fighting and divisions that were occurring in the Corinthian church by addressing the centrality of the cross. The message of the cross is not worldly wisdom but is the wisdom of God which shames the wise of this world. God chose the cross of Christ so that no one could boast in their own power, wisdom, or knowledge. Further, Paul made the point that the message he and the other preachers who came to them possessed the Spirit of God so that the words they taught were the Spirit’s words, that is, the very words of God, and not human words or wisdom.
