The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.
The message of Jesus death on the cross for our sins is looked at as foolishness to those who don’t believe it. But He didn’t stay dead, in fact His resurrection proved that He has power over death and the grave! People make idols out of wealth, and power but Jesus came to the earth to redeem us from our sins as the humble and meek Lamb of God. The foolish ones who don’t believe are headed for an eternity of being separated from God. Those who are being saved know that Jesus and Jesus alone is the mighty power of God and that belief in Him is the way to salvation. God’s word is so simple regarding the gift of salvation that many people don’t accept it because they are looking for something more complex. It is simple faith and our coming to Jesus like a small child that will bring us into the Kingdom of Heaven.
