“The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing.” Indeed to so many the message of the cross is mocked and ridiculed. Our Savior is cursed and blasphemed. Many are ignoring the redemption plan offered by God in the Bible and attempting to devise another one. Some, who claim to have a heritage in the church, have gone so far as to assert the message of the cross is unneeded in our “enlightened” age.
“But to us who are being saved it, the cross is the power of God.” We rejoice in the cross, which is a demonstration of the love, wisdom and power of God! Its power continues to break the heavy chains of sin and bondage.
Christ died once for all on Calvary’s Cross to redeem fallen mankind. No better plan is needed. The mission of the effective church and faithful Christian is to proclaim the salvation message of the cross through the way we live our lives.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God”
-1 Corinthians 1:18
Dear Lord, We thank you for the wonderful gift you gave to each of us, all we need to do is to accept it. Lord we pray that we would take that gift and freely share it with those around us. In Jesus’ Name, amen
