The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 1:18, “The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God”.
I understand this statement completely. Before I came to Christ I didn’t believe in the cross and I didn’t think it had any power for salvation. I was like one of the people who scoffed at Noah as he built his ark. They didn’t believe that the ark could save them…until the rain came.
Now I do believe in the power of the cross of Christ. I believe that Christ’s death on the cross for me is the only way to find salvation (Acts 4:12, Romans 5:8). I realise that I am not good enough to make it to heaven on my own (Ephesians 2:8-9) and that I need to have Jesus as my Lord and Saviour (Romans 10:9-10).
The message of the cross has great power. It has the power to take you and I from an eternity without God, to eternity with God. Forever and ever and then much more time!
