The Power of the Cross

(A devotion by Scott Gerhart)

“Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.  For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures”  1 Corinthians 15: 1-4

My friends we are in the Lenten Season when traditionally many Christians take time to stop and contemplate all that Christ has accomplished.  I would say this is a tradition worth continuing, otherwise the clutter that tends to accumulate in our lives can rob us of our joy.  Such was the case with the Corinthians when Paul admonished them to take a time-out to recall what was most important.  The Corinthians were falling down in some ways, yet we see Paul declares that the Gospel was the reason they could stand.

The cross is not simply an historical event, a symbol of something past or a doctrine that we check off and put on our “I known that” list.  No, it is a sign pointing to that which gives us the power to stand today; the gospel, the life, death burial and resurrection of Christ.  The gospel has the potential to energize every minute of the day if we let it through the power of the cross, so we too can stand.

I’ll close with my favorite scripture from Romans 1:16.

“I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is the 1power of God for 2salvation to everyone who believes…”

1power (dunamis) is where we get dynamo, or power from God that keeps building and getting stronger.
2salvation (soteria) indicates, rescue and protection both in the here and now in this life and eternally)
