The Message of the Cross


The Message of the Cross The Message of the Cross Is foolishness to those perishing. But to us who are being saved, It’s the power of God refreshing. The wisdom of this world Is foolishness to God above. Christ’s sacrificial crucifixion— A mighty measure of His love. The message of Christ crucified Was to the Jews a stumbling block; To the Gentiles foolishness; To both a type of roadblock. God chooses the foolish things To confound the wise. Fishermen to tell the gospel— Ultimately despised. The Message of the Cross Tells of God’s bountiful love; Those who followed Christ, Received his power from above. For most were simple men Not of higher education; In simplicity God is glorified; Needs no human wisdom of foundation. God wants us to boast In His power from heaven; His wise, precious word By His Holy Spirit driven. The Message of the Cross Will forever be lost, To those seeking man’s wisdom; Eternal death their cost! Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2008-2012
