What is your attitude toward the cross of Jesus? Is it merely an ornament to accessorize your outfit? Or is the cross one to adorn the building where you assemble, or to adorn the top of the communion set? Is it embossed into the binding of your Bible? What place does the cross of Jesus hold in your life?
Paul affirmed that to those who are saved, the preaching of the cross is the power of God.
