This is one of the best explanations of why the cross is at the centre of the Christian faith. However, we are often tempted to trust in something other than the cross….in fact, some ‘Christian’ leaders are making a living out of writing books against the centrality of the work of Jesus on the cross.
In preparation for Sunday, you can do the following:
- Read: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31
- Think: Why does the Cross seem foolish to people?
- Be honest: If you had to choose a symbol for the Christian faith, would you choose the cross? Why?
- Pray through: Ask the Lord to reveal to you afresh the importance and centrality of the Cross.
See you Sunday!
