Preaching of the Cross…

I Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Just a short note today about the real meaning of the cross. To nonbelievers it does not make sense. They think that we who call ourselves followers of Jesus Christ are just foolish.  Little do they realize that the rejection of the cross seals their place in eternity. Without the cross, it is no wonder that the world is full of hopelessness and despair.

It is the opposite to those of us who know the power of the cross. In it is our hope and peace. All of our expectations of eternity are based in the deliverance of the cross. The cross is the power of God that brings us salvation. The death of Jesus Christ on the cross and His Resurrection set us free from sin and all its punishment. 

To reject the cross is to face eternity without God. Without the cross there is no escape from the punishments of God and hell itself.  However, with the cross, we look at eternity as a place of blessing as we enter the presence of God. Let me encourage you to accept the sacrifice of Christ on the cross and secure your place with God in eternity!

Keep Looking Up,
