1 Corinthians 1:18 - The word of the cross is foolish to the perishing, but
to those of us who are saved - the power of God.

Part 2 ~ The Complete Work Of The Cross

At the cross, every testimony given against mankind was put to death and
erased forever (Colossians 2:14). The cross is where the altar of God was
prepared so the Passover Lamb could become our sin offering and liberate us
from the snare of iniquity and eternal death (1 Corinthians 5:7; Hebrews
13:10-13; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:24). At the cross, every
principality and power was defeated and rendered utterly powerless to
execute their will over those who would believe (John 12:31; Colossians
2:14-15; Hebrews 2:14; 2 Timothy 1:10).

Through the blood of the cross, we received the cleansing and empowerment
to step into the Holy of Holies and behold the Lord in all of His glory
(Hebrews 10:19; Colossians 1:20). It was through the cross that everything
in Heaven and Earth was cleansed (Colossians 1:20; Hebrews 9:23, 12:22-24).
It was through the cross that the separation between Jew and Gentile was
abolished (Ephesians 2:11-19). At the cross, God gave us His most precious
gift: the death of His Son (John 3:16; Romans 8:32). Now that we have been
purchased by the blood and sealed by the Spirit we should in like manner
lay our life down for the brethren (1 John 3:16).
