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 3 ~ The Centrality Of The Cross

The one thing that represents the Gospel of Jesus Christ more than anything
else is the cross. We must recognize how when we speak of the cross of
Christ, we are referring to that altar on which the blood of Jesus was
offered (Hebrews 13:10-13). What was purchased for us on the cross was
purchased by His shed blood. The preaching of the cross is the power of God
and the power of the New Covenant, because it is where the blood of Jesus
was supplied. It does not matter who you are, whether you are a Jew or a
Gentile, there is only one way to be changed and brought into relationship
with God; and that is through the cross of Christ (Ephesians 2:16). If this
redeeming work is emphasized, if Christ Jesus is lifted up in those things
which we proclaim, then all men will be drawn to Him (John 12:32). The
authority of the cross in seen in our lives because we are crucified with
Him (Galatians 2:20; Romans 6:1-4). By the miracle of salvation, His death
became our death - so that His life might be our life. The blood of the
cross has become our testimony of a redeemed and transformed life. It is
the token of our death and our new life that we now live by the power that
is in His blood (Romans 6).
