simplicity of the cross

The cross is foolishness for those who are parishing. What does this really mean? I think that the idea of someone giving their very life for another is too radical and simplistic for most people - yet this is what Christ did for each of us.
He followed the plan that His Father had for the redemption of the world, a plan that would cost God his one and only Son. Yet the plan was not complete in the cross for He raised Christ from death to life to give us life forever. And the most astounding aspect to His plan was this one simple thing - He did all this because He loves us and wants to have a relationship with His children. Yeah, that includes you and me!
Do you know Him?
God is so good and His love endures forever!

  1. One person giving their life for another isn't all that rare or unique, but if that one person is the very King himself, whom the Jews in Palestine knew was coming... the descendant of the great King David, the promised anointed one, the Messiah, the Christ, the chosen one of God who would bring divine liberty to the people of God and victory over all wickedness...

    ...this is the one who was executed as a criminal? What foolishness is that?

    Praise God that his foolishness is wiser than our wisdom! (1 Corinthians 1:25)
