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
What does the cross of Jesus Christ mean to you? You don't have to look far in a crowd to see someone wearing a cross necklace or medallion. It is a nice thing to do, but how many who wear this symbol of Christ are really knowing what it means and living a life pleasing to Him?
The cross is powerful and is an offense to many. Monuments with the cross have been a subject of lawsuits to remove them because of what they stand for and that is Christ and His death and miraculous resurrection. Even if these non believers are successful in taking down crosses, Jesus and God are not going anywhere.
The world in 2016 is becoming more and more hostile to believers and those who choose to live out their faith according to the word of God without compromise. Even here in America we are starting to see Christian persecution although not yet on the scale of some nations who die for their faith. Don't be afraid to live out your faith everywhere you go and speak up for the truth of the cross of Jesus Christ.
PRAYER: I love the word of God. It lights my path and gives me comfort. Help me not get so comfortable that I don't reach out with the message of the cross to a hurting and lost society who needs you desperately. The truth will indeed set us free. Bring revival Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
