The Cross: Our Challenge Before A Watching World, Part 2 of 2 (Christians, Politics, And The Cross)

April 1, 2020

While on earth, Jesus chose to veil His glory and limit His options. And that’s the key to how we can bring His message to the lost. As we learn why the cross can do what politics can’t, we’ll also find out how to effectively take the cross into the world.

There is a basic dilemma in evangelism. The world thinks the cross we preach is foolishness, but to us, it is the power of God. So how do we bring the message of the cross to a rejecting world? When we begin to imitate the attitude of Christ, in both humility and suffering, we can make the Gospel of God known in the world.

Americans are adrift in a sea of moral relativism. We need a moral compass. The cross of Christ is that compass, and the church must live by the cross if our culture is to survive. Let’s help the world by first calling the church back to the cross of Christ.

A culture that rejects Christ is a culture that creates its own standard for moral choices. This moral standard influences our vote, which then determines our nation’s destiny. So, where does true morality come from?

Many who seek justice call for “a level playing field” of opportunity. There is one place where the field is level, and that is at the foot of the cross of Christ. This cross is the only basis for reconciling people of different racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.

Many of today’s conflicts stem from deep-rooted racial or ethnic strife. It seems there is no human solution in our institutions, systems, and even homes, but there is a divine solution. There is a place of common ground for those who cannot stand the sight of each other.

On the day that Jesus died just outside of Jerusalem, many people passed by, as many do today, without realizing the eternal consequences of what was happening on that cruel Roman cross. It may seem unjust to our finite minds, but it was because of God’s love that Jesus suffered.

As we run life’s race, let us not forget that mercy is not getting what you deserve. God was not obligated to save any of us, and yet He has. When skeptics question God’s love, we must point them first to the cross where the Son of God suffered and died—for us.

These days, polling data is king. In the mainstream media, truth seems to lie with the majority opinion. But when it comes to the cross, the majority culture hates it and finds it offensive. So what should Christians do to demonstrate that the cross reveals God’s power and grace?
March 20, 2020
The cross is the centerpiece of history and the core of God’s redemptive agenda. Even before time, God planned the cross of Calvary in order to save people from every nation. But not everyone views the cross this way. As we will soon see, the contrast is startling.
March 19, 2020
The cross of Jesus was in God’s mind from eternity past. Its benefits extend to eternity yet to be. It is history’s great intersection—the place where God expressed His love to fallen mankind most clearly.
