The message of the cross // 07-04-23

“The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭1‬:‭18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

It’s not just today, in this so called enlightened, scientific age, that people reject the Christian faith. All those years ago the cross seemed like foolishness to the philosophers, the scholars and the great debaters! That the God who created the universe would humble himself, appear on this little spec of cosmic dust and die for us? It makes no sense, and yet to those of us who believe, it is the power of God that saves us! He really does love us that much. He really does want to restore us to relationship with Himself as He always intended. He really has dealt with the issue of sin that separates, and His perfect sacrifice on that cross really does have the power to forgive us, to redeem us, to restore us, to reconcile us, to free us! Father, on this Good Friday 2023 I want to say thank You for sending Jesus, thank You for making me right in Your sight through the power of the cross! Help me to live in the light of all You have done for me, raised with Christ to experience new life with You. Amen ✝️=💜
