The Message Of The Cross

“I know very well how foolish it sounds to those who are lost, when they hear that Jesus died to save them. But we who are saved recognize this message as the very power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18). In the movie, “Fireproof,” Catherine and Caleb find themselves on the way to Divorce Court. Caleb is given a book, Love Dare, by his father, which he thinks might save his marriage, that is in the flames of destruction. Catherine has no desire to save their marriage. It is only when Caleb, then Catherine, view the need of the message of the cross in their lives and marriage, that their marriage is saved. Notice the directions of the cross; vertically connecting mankind with God, and horizontally, connecting mankind with mankind, and in the case of marriage, connecting a man and his wife. The message of the cross is written as follows, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) A parting note; when problems arise in our lives, we should keep our glance on the problems and our gaze on the cross.
