The Power of the Cross

Christians believe that the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, with his resurrection, was the most important event in the history of the world. To Christians, the cross of Christ is the source of all hope and comfort. Yet the same cross that is so attractive to the followers of Christ is exactly what keeps others from coming to him at all. How could there be any power in a man hanging on a cross?

The Peace of the Cross

Probably because we all want to think of ourselves as peace loving individuals. But the fact is, we are at war, with God. The good news is, that God has made a peace offering towards us. Will you accept it?

The Offense of the Cross

The Necessity of the Cross

Grotesque, morbid, unsightly. . . those words describe something that is at the very heart of Christianity. It’s something that is preached and taught about all the time in the Christian faith.

For wherever the cross disappears, true Christianity also disappears.

A Word for the Fallen

Peter was a big disciple. He was the first disciple to trust Christ with his life. He left his career and followed God. But even Peter denied Christ. . . not once but three times! But thankfully Jesus Christ did not abandon Peter. He picked him up after he had fallen, set him back on his feet, and encouraged him to continue to grow in his faith. And the good news is that this same encouragement is available to us when we stumble.
