The Message of the Cross

I Corinthians 1:18

To some the cross is a symbol of cruelty. It certainly was a cruel form of execution, but that is not the focus of the cross today. Today, the cross stands for the completed work of Jesus Christ. Paul wrote, "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness". For those who have never been to the cross for salvation do not understand the purpose and the reason for it.

The cross is of great importance to the believer today. It is far more than just a religious symbol. The Apostle Paul said that he would glory in the cross.

(Gal 6:14) "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world."

Let me give you three reasons today why the message of the cross is so important, why it means so much to those who are born again.

I. It Is A Saving Message.

II. It Is A Simple Message.

III. It Is A Satisfying Message.

The message of the cross is a saving message, a simple message, and a satisfying message. Come today and receive Christ.
