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
There are some “Christians” who don’t think the “message of the cross” is important or it should be removed from doctrine. However, without the sacrifice at the cross, there would be no Christianity, as there would be no new covenant. Our victory, hope, and salvation all begin at Calvary, when God sent his only begotten Son to save us from our sins.
Those who don’t understand the deity of Jesus Christ, or understand Jesus is the “Lamb of God’ of course won’t understand the “message of the cross”. Salvation begins with a perfect sacrifice, atonement for our sins.
So how can we rejoice over the cross? An instrument created for torture and death. We can rejoice that God’s love and mercy are so great for us, that he did the unimaginable. Instead of allowing us to perish for the wages of our sins, he sent Jesus to take our place. Even though we are sinners, God loved us anyway, that is the Power of God.
Nothing Satan can do to us , can overcome what God has already done. Victory is ours because of Jesus at the cross. So you may think the “message of the cross” is foolishness but to the redeemed it’s the “Power of God” in Jesus Name Amen
