Message Of The Cross

The Message of the Cross

The Good News of the Gospel of  Jesus Christ  preached here in the Message of the Cross.

1 Corinthians 1:18  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.

God created all people from the same blood and it is His desire for all people to be saved.
There is no partiality with God.  

Acts 17: 26-27 And God  has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord,
in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.

1 Timothy 2:4 God desires all people to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.  
Romans 2:11 For there is no partiality with God.
Our sin problem revealed:  Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God .

The penalty of our sin and the gift of God: Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins on the cross:  Luke 23: 33 And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left.

Jesus Christ was the grace of God's love gift for us even though we are all sinnersRomans 5:8 But God demonstrates His love towards us that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.

The sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross by His shed blood saves all who believe in Him from the future wrath of God in Hell.
Romans 5:9  Much more then, having been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Matthew 10: 28 Jesus said,  And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear God who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Jesus said we must repent which means to acknowledge that sin is wrong and only by faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ to pay sins penalty can we avoid perishing in Hell.
Luke 13:3 Jesus said, I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.
The Gospel of Christ, the way of salvation explained by the Scriptures, God's word: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4   Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you,
which also you received and in which you stand,  by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you unless you believed in vain.
That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures and that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.

Believing unto salvation always follows the preaching of the Gospel Of Christ:
1 Corinthians 15:11 Therefore, whether it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

Confessing and believing in Jesus is done by the one being saved.
Romans 10:9-13 That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scriptures says, whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

After believing in Jesus you will receive the forgiveness of sins:  Acts 10:43 To Jesus all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive the forgiveness of sins.

After believing in Jesus you will have eternal life and Heaven will be your eternal home:
John 3:16
Jesus said, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

After believing in Jesus you are a new person:
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

After believing in Jesus you will never be alienated or separated from God and are righteous in His sight:
Colossians 1:21-22    And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled  in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight.
John 10:28 Jesus said, And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

Today is the right day to believe and be saved:
2 Corinthians 6:2 For God says, In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you. Behold now is the accepted time, behold, now is the day of salvation.

Believe in Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Savior.
