The message of the cross is foolish to those who are perishing. At the same time, to those who come to Christ for salvation, it is the power of God. We can hear God’s wisdom in the cross through listening to the proclamation of the Gospel. Paul summarizes the Gospel message: that Christ died for our sins and on the third day he was resurrected from the dead. All of this took place according to the Scriptures. The reason for His death was so that we might have forgiveness of sins. Words of human wisdom empty the message of the cross of its power. The Jews sought after signs and the Greeks sought wisdom, all the while, both rejected the real message of the cross. The wisdom of the world is foolishness in God’s sight. The preaching of the gospel also involves proclaiming from the Bible how the believer is to live. Listen and discover God’s wisdom in the cross.
