Behold, the Power of the Cross

“When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”  (Colossians 2:13-15)

Everything that you have ever done, any sin that you have ever committed in the past, present or in the future is done with! In that moment when you gave your life to Christ, something happened.  God took all of those sins, every documentation of those sins and put them on the cross. They were nailed there.  God chose to use the horrible death of His Son to pay a price that you and I could not pay.  That’s why refusing such a gift is to invite the very wrath of God.

You see, the cross makes us right with God.  When we’re right with God, something else happens.  We will become right with our families.  Our relationships will begin to flow because we’ve experienced the love of God and therefore communication will be improved.  We will begin to reach out as never before and long for flowing relationships in all directions.  In fact, once you meet Jesus, the boundary lines of denominationalism and all agendas begin to change. You develop a love for those who love Christ.  Why?  Because the love of God is in you and through you and in them and through them and it connects with you.

The hope of world peace is only in Christ, in Christ alone! The world’s people will never find themselves on the same page for long without the One who made the page. To buy into such an agenda of desiring world peace without the World Changer is nothing more than foolish, arrogant thinking! If God could change you, there’s hope for all people. That hope begins at the cross! So, go out and tell somebody, today!
