TOPIC: THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS IS THE POWER OF GOD

TEXT: I CORINTHIANS 1:18-31


The message of the cross is central to Christianity. If you take away the message of the cross there is no Christianity. We are sure of salvation because of the cross of Jesus Christ. He died for us so that we could live for Him. The salvation that the cross secured for us is free but not cheap. There is a cost for being Christ's disciple, Jesus reminded His followers that “…whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:27).

A. W. Tozer sums it up by observing that “Christ calls men to carry a cross; we call them to have fun in His name. He calls them to forsake the world; we assure them that if they accept Jesus the world is their oyster. He calls them to suffer; we call them to enjoy all the comfort modern civilization affords…. He calls them to holiness; we call them to a cheap and tawdry happiness.”


QUESTION

Are you lured by the gospel that has no room for the real Jesus of the cross?


PRAYER

Please, Father, grant me the grace to carry my cross daily and follow Jesus, Amen.
