The Comfortable Cross 
Not a Fan Series - Week 4


 “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me.”  Luke 9:23 

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to those who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18 

“Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles…For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.”  1 Corinthians 1:22

Who else but God could take a cross that represented defeat –
          and turn it into a symbol of victory?

Who else but God could take a cross that represented guilt –
       and turn it into the symbol for grace?

 Who else but God could take a cross that represented condemnation –
          and turn it into a symbol of freedom?

 Who else but God could take a cross that represented pain and suffering –
          and turn it into symbol of healing and hope?

 Who else but God could take a cross that represented death –
          and turn it into a symbol of life?

What God Did For the Cross, He Can Do for You.  

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose
the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 1 Corinthians 1:27 

“I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in…For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
