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 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Paul tells us that the core message of the Christian faith is not easy to accept—and that is how God wants it! To proclaim that we are so sinful that Jesus had to die so we can interact with a holy God is offensive to the person who tries to justify himself or herself by their behavior, yet it is only when we see the depth of our sin that we can receive the height of His mercy. The cross of Christ humbles us as it lifts us up.
