The Humbling Power of Cross Centered Thinking
In this blog post by CJ Mahaney - President of Sovereign Grace Ministries - he writes about the humbling power of the cross. As we are currently going through the sermon series Gospel Formation, we have seen that the goal is total obedience to Jesus. Only can that occur when we meditate on the humbling power of Christ on the cross. My prayer for us is that we would meditate on the power of the cross and come to know Christ in a deeper way.
“Here is a right thinking about the cross. There is a true wisdom in the cross. Paul said, “Among the mature we do impart wisdom” (1 Corinthians 2:6). The difference between the wisdom that the cross destroys and the wisdom that the cross awakens is the difference between self-exalting wisdom and Christ-exalting wisdom. True wisdom sees the glory of God in the cross. False wisdom sees the cross as foolishness because it threatens our pride.”
