Hallelujah For the Cross!

Whatever heights of academic success, whatever number of graduate degrees an individual may possess, if he or she has not attained a God-inspired understanding of the message of the Bible, both Old andNewTestaments, that person has less than half an education, and his or her arrogated position on the stairway of wisdom remains below that of the simplest believer and follower of Jesus Christ.

Some may well take offense at the above statement. But I have seen the truth of the above statement over and over again in eight plus decades of life among people both high and low.

“How can it possibly be true?”, you ask. It is true because the least educated child of God, having received new life through faith in Christ, now has access to all the riches of the wisdom of God, to the extent he is ready and willing to humbly ask and receive.

Not only so but the believing Christian also has a confirmed hope in all the power and goodness of God in Jesus Christ—which the unbeliever can neither know nor begin to understand, and who therefore remains incapable of receiving and experiencing the love of his Creator God.

Still God waits in love for the unbelieving to turn from his or her rejection of God to an honest search for the truth about the God of the Bible. When that turning toward God happens, Jesus is rewarded again for his depth of suffering on the cross, and the resurrection of Jesus from the grave and his ascension to the throne of God in heaven is once more confirmed—for all eternity.

How amazing that the God who created the universe saw fit to become one of us in the person of Jesus Christ, the most astonishing and humblest of men in coming to us in order to die for sinners on a Roman cross.

Hallelujah for the cross—and the resurrection!
