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 Cor 1:18)
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes..
What is the power of God?
It is the message of the cross.. It is the gospel of Christ.
If you want to see the power of God, if you want to know, if you want to touch the power of God..
You've got to see, know, touch.. the message of the cross.
Because when you avoid the message of the cross when you talk about church, life, love and happiness, you're basically avoiding and missing out on the power of God.
But the moment you start talking about the cross.. About how God SO loved that he gave, about how Jesus SO loved us that he obeyed the Father and laid down his life, about how he took upon himself all of our sin, shame and condemnation, about how his body was broken for us that our bodies may be whole, about how he was cursed so that we will be blessed, about how he died our death for us so that we would never die, and how he was forsaken by God so that our Father will never ever leave us...
The Holy Spirit gets excited. He gets involved.
There is power.
Not just any power but THE power of God.
Can you feel it?
All glory and praise to Jesus!
