1 Corinthians 1:18: The message of the cross

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 NKJV

The foundation of Christianity is the message of the cross.  When we understand the finished work of Christ and all that Jesus has done for us, we walk in freedom and authority.  It is Jesus death and resurrection that has set us free from the bondage of sin and it is the death and resurrection of Jesus that has set us free from the demands of the law.

In Jesus Christ we are born again.  We are a new creation in Christ.  Our past no longer remains and our future is in the hands of the Lord.  His grace and His mercy covers every area of our lives.  His anointing is upon us in all that we do.  We have nothing to fear because the Good Shepherd goes before us and provides for every need.  The battle belongs unto Him and He has simply bid  us to draw near and seek Him with all our heart.  Focus your hearts not on your self or your circumstances, focus your heart instead upon the Lord and His love for you.
