BE READY FOR HIS RETURN
There is an awesome power about the cross. Jesus said, “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself” (John 12:32). There is a mysterious magnetism about the cross that attracts us. The cross convicts the sinner, it convinces the skeptic, it humbles the arrogant. The Bible says, “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). Some consider the cross “foolishness” today. They can look in the face of the crucified Christ and be totally indifferent. But to those of us who are Christian, we know that the cross forgives our sin, transforms our daily attitude, and gives us an eternal hope.
Over the course of this Easter sermon series, we want to stand beneath the cross and look at the Savior dying for us again. We’re going to look at the cross from the perspective of a variety of people who were there in the first century. And the hope is that we will see it in a fresh way and that we will conclude of a truth, “This man is the Son of God, dying for me.”
