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
In my opinion the GREATEST EVIDENCE of God’s POWER is in the MESSAGE of the CROSS, which is the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST, and His mission to SEEK and to SAVE the LOST.
In this verse of Scripture we clearly see mankind divided into two groups. Those who are PERISHING, the LOST, and those who are BEING SAVED, or the UNBELIEVER and the TRUE BELIEVER.The Apostle Paul, saw a need for the RENEWAL of the minds of the Corinthian believers.They were trying to live their CHRISTIAN lives under their own POWER, and using UNSANCTIFIED common sense, which leads to:SELF-seeking, SELF-serving, and SELF-destruction.And they were NOT depending on the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT, which indwelt them, and still indwells EVERY TRUE BELIEVER, today.
The MESSAGE of the CROSS, will eliminate SELF-CENTEREDNESS, and bring the individual to the CROSS, giving them the MESSAGE that JESUS SAVES, and there is NO OTHER WAY to become a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD.It brings them to first, being JUSTIFIED, then after JUSTIFICATION, they will be SANCTIFIED, and then GLORIFICATION.The MESSAGE of the CROSS brings SELF-DENIAL, and OBEDIENCE to God and His Word.
The GREATEST EVIDENCE of the POWER of God, I believe is the REGENERATION of the HEART of MANKIND.The POWER of the CROSS, resulting in the POWER to SAVE mankind from the POWER of SIN, ETERNAL DEATH, and the GRAVE.To me, this is the GREATEST EVIDENCE of God’s POWER.Have you experienced His SAVING POWER?
The way for you to experience the SAVING POWER of GOD, is for you to be WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and experience the POWER of GOD, and the POWER He has to give you an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and to be able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL with ALL its HORRORS.Do this NOW, while you still can.He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
