The Power of the Cross

“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

How often do you give thought to the Cross? The unfathomable power of the cross of Jesus Christ? From the very beginning, Jesus' death and resurrection were a part of God's plan. But the power of the cross didn’t end when Jesus suffered, gave up His spirit, and died. His death thrust open the door of salvation to all people. Those who walk through it by faith are forgiven for every sin and ensured a place in heaven for all of eternity. There is not a more liberating, redeeming, costly, significant, or glorious work in all of human history than the cross of Jesus Christ. Jesus paid the price for our sins so we wouldn't have to. He died on a cross and rose again to defeat the power of sin and death in the life of every person who believes. The more I understand the staggering, sanctifying power of the cross, the more humbled I become. My goal is to know Jesus and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings. What an extra ordinary death, what an extra ordinary Savior. This is the magnificent power of the cross. Has the blood been applied to your life?

  1. So happy Jesus took my place on that cross. We will never fully understand the incredible price He paid, but He did it because of a great love for us. Thank you my Lord Jesus!
