Do we expect our leaders to not bleed? Jesus, the greatest leader that the world has seen, went to the cross and very publicly bled.
In Jesus' death on the cross, God turned defeat into victory.
- Why do Christians make such a big deal of the cross?
- Why does God appear to commit divine child abuse?
- Is this the only way that people can be saved?
The butterfly effect: The death of one man, Jesus, saved millions for all eternity.
The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. — 1 Corinthians 1:18
The other reading in this service is Luke 22:39-44 & 23:44-49.
