“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. I don’t know what it is about this verse, but it's powerful for me. I think that it brings the Gospel message back to the central point in time in history – Jesus on the cross. And what Jesus did on the cross changed everything. Jesus changed history. The power of the cross is such that Jesus continues to change things this very moment. He is changing you. He is changing me. Question: To us who are being saved, is the message of the cross literally the power of God? Do you meditate upon the cross regularly and meditate upon what the message of the cross truly is? Are you sharing the message of the cross with others in your life? What is the message of the cross? What does the message of the cross mean to you personally? Is it foolishness? Or, is it the power of God?
