1 Corinthians 1:18

18For 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.


The cross divides the world. There are those who see the story of Jesus and call it foolish and those who call it powerful. Whichever side of the line you are on determines whether you are perishing or saved. Nobody wants to perish, but there are those who struggle to believe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus to be the truth. The Holy Spirit works in our hearts to bring us to the side of salvation, and it is in this season of Lent that we look upon the cross with awe, and thank God for his forgiveness and love. Who do you know that is perishing? How can you share God’s love with them?
