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.
Those who are lost and perishing simply see the message of the cross as foolishness. We live in a day and age where few believe in God and His existence. Many have made themselves their own god. During the apostle Paul’s day many worshiped idols. But in our time the focus of people’s worship is simply themselves.
The technology of our day has made life easy and comfortable. Many see no purpose in believing in God because they see no need for Him in their lives. Because if they believe in God they are accountable for the lives they live and few today desire to be accountable for the choices and decisions they make on a daily basis.
But for those who believe in Jesus Christ the message of the cross is the power of God. It is the message of the cross that sets us free because our sins have been nailed to the cross. Our righteousness is found in Christ alone. When our faith has been placed in Jesus Christ, His righteousness if applied to our lives. May our eyes and hearts be fixed upon Jesus and prepare our hearts daily for His soon return.
