The Message of The Cross

Lloyd Gill- Grace Community Church

The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing. To us who are being saved, it is the power of God…… we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles 1 Cor 1:18,23

The fact that christians celebrate Christ's death seems foolish. This is because we struggle to accept that we’re sinners, and to submit our lives to God. It seems foolish and offensive to suggest we are not our own master, but if there is a God who created and maintains all things, we must eventually submit to Him.

We think of righteousness in relative terms, but righteousness is not relative, it is absolute, this too is offensive. We want to make our own standards, but in the presence of God our standards are inadequate, He is absolutely holy, just and righteous, and your efforts will never be good enough.

This is why the cross is the power of God to those who are being saved, it is the reason for our joy and confidence. Not that I was good enough, but Christ who was perfect gave His life to save mine.
