There is no greater cleavage between faith and unbelief than in their respective attitudes to the cross. Where faith sees glory, unbelief sees only disgrace. What was foolishness to Greeks, and continues to be to modern intellectuals who trust in their own wisdom, is nevertheless the wisdom of God. And what remains a stumbling-block to those who trust in their own righteousness, like the Jews of the first century, proves to be the saving power of God.
Stott, John. The Cross of Christ . InterVarsity Press. Kindle Edition.
Today is Day-6 of our daily reflections on the Cross as we head towards the annual remembrance our Lord’s crucifixion. Thirty days to go.
By now, if you have been faithfully tracking with me, one of two things have happened…
Either you’ve been drawn to the Cross or you’ve have become increasingly troubled by it.
The Cross has always been that way.
It has always been the great divide that brings one to a moment of decision.
18 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.
1 Corinthians 1:18
The ONE THING for today: The Cross of Jesus Christ is calling out to you. What is your decision?
