The teaching about the cross seems foolish to those who are lost. But to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18 (ERV)
When you’re at school or talking to your friends, have you ever felt like others didn’t understand your relationship with God? Did you ever feel out of place or wondered why Jesus just doesn’t seem to make sense to others when it makes perfect sense to you?
There is a reason. Today’s Bible verse says that the “Cross” or the teaching of Jesus seems foolish to those who do not know Him yet. Why is this? It’s because the message of Jesus only makes sense when it’s mixed with faith.
When you hear about Jesus and all that He did and you mix it with faith, it begins to make sense. Christianity completely centers off of this event. The cross completely changed everything and showed all of God’s power.
Everything you need past, present and future stems off of what Jesus did through the Cross. If you’re anxious the cross handles that. If you deal with fear, the cross handles that. Whatever you face, the cross handles it.
This doesn’t mean that you don’t need to share Jesus with others, however. They may not get it, but there is a chance that they could hear the message and choose to believe it as you did. So keep sharing with others and believe that they’ll have an opportunity to be changed by the message of the cross just like you.
