“LENT”

THE POWER OF THE CROSS

Redeemed, Reconciled, Restored

For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18

“The point of trying to understand the cross better is not so that we can congratulate ourselves for having solved an intellectual crossword puzzle, but so that God’s power and wisdom may work in us, through us, and out into the world that still regards  Jesus’s crucifixion as weakness and folly.”  Tom Wright

Throughout our journey of Lent we will explore how the message of the cross reveals a wisdom for us to live out, that the world can often see as foolishness. What does it look like to live out God’s expression of power, as revealed in Christ, that goes against the grain of worldly definitions of power?

Can we, as followers of this Christ way, lose sight of these differences and how does this speak into the nature of our ‘sin’ and our susceptibility to ‘false idols’?

How can we be encouraged and inspired by one of the core tenets of our faith? That God so loved the world, that he sent his son to die and rise again and thereby redefine for all time. What is true and what isn’t, what is wise and what isn’t, what is weak and what is powerful.
