The Message of the Cross

The message of the cross
Sounds so simple
Stupid, foolish, useless
To those who are lost,
Sold out to sin and Satan
And on the road to destruction, damnation
And condemnation.

Their eyes are darkened
Blinded as they grope in the dark.
They are deceived, deluded; digging the grave for themselves,
Opening the door to hell as they pride themselves of their wisdom and intellect.

But to those who are being saved;
To those who humble themselves and bow the knee at the cross,
It is the grace of God, the mercy of God, the power of God, the Medicine of God for sin-sickness; the Goodness of God extended to them; the light of God turned on for those in the dark; the scepter of deliverance extended to those on death row;
the bridge for the chasm between man and God;
the full payment and atonement for their sins. (1 Cor1:18)

We know the scriptures are being fulfilled which said:
‘I will destroy human wisdom and discard their most brilliant ideas.’

So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made them all look foolish and has shown their wisdom to be useless nonsense. Since God in His wisdom saw to it that the world would never find Him through human wisdom, He has used our foolish preaching to save all who believe. 1 Cor1:19-21

So where do you stand?
Are you one of the brilliant debaters, philosophers, scholars undermining, rubbishing and ignoring the Word of God, or have you regarded your wisdom as foolishness and joined the company of the redeemed?

Have you opened for yourself, the road to heaven or the road to hell?
Have you cursed yourself with your pride and intellect
or blessed yourself with your humility and repentance?
