Christ and the CrossIt is no exaggeration to say that the execution of Jesus of Nazareth by crucifixion is the pivotal point in world history. What is the meaning of that event as far as our relationship with God is concerned? What shall be our response to it? These are “crucial” questions. Indeed they are the most important questions we can ask. If the preaching of the apostles of Jesus is true, the eternal destiny of every human being hinges on each individual’s decision about the cross of Jesus Christ. Will we believe what the apostles taught, commit to its truth, and “die with Christ” (Galatians 2:20) — or will we reject it? We will surely want to make an informed, deliberate choice in this matter.

Paul, one of the apostles, wrote to the Christians in Corinth, “I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2). Like his fellow apostles, Paul understood that Jesus’ sacrificial death to atone for our sins was the very heart of the gospel. It needs to be kept at the forefront of our attention today.

The lessons in this series focus on five specific truths about the cross. While these are “sermon outlines,” they can also be useful for personal Bible study or as the basis for small-group Bible discussions. May this study remind us that the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing!
