“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.”
To the believer, those who have embraced the cross and all that it stands for, the thought of the message associated with it being foolish is preposterous. The scales have fallen off our eyes and we can see the truth for what it is. I can tell you that before I accepted Christ the whole concept of accepting Him and living for God was ridiculous to me and I grew up in a Presbyterian church (which doesn’t speak very highly for that particular church). It should be easy for believers to see and understand why non-Christians would find our faith to be foolish; a crutch for WEAK people to lean on.
What about us would compel them to change their mind? Is there anything? That is why it is imperative that we strive to BE LIKE CHRIST in our daily lives. In and of ourselves there is nothing that would cause anyone to change their opinion about anything, let alone a faith-based decision as important as this one. We must let Christ use us as a conduit; a vehicle that will carry those around us to the foot of the cross where they might see what we saw when we gave our life away. Let God use you to save the world or at least a little piece of it anyway.
WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
