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
Each one of us is either in the process of salvation or the process of destruction. Which process you choose is your own choice. The response to the knowledge of the cross of Christ determines which process you have chosen. Those who choose to reject the cross are in the process of eternal destruction and they are already perishing. To these the message of the cross is nonsense and foolishness.
But to those who have responded to the message of the cross they know God’s divine plan and provision for the redemption of sinners. The gospel focuses on the incarnation and crucifixion of Christ. This is the theme for the message of the cross and it is powerful wisdom to those who are saved.
What is the message of the cross to you? Is it foolishness?
Or, is it the power of God.
We need to continually pray for our unsaved family, friends and co-workers for they are currently perishing. But the power of our God can bring them to the saving knowledge of Christ.
Be Blessed,
