Phil 3:18-19 The Cross

The cross of Christ is important.

  • Rom 1:16-17
    • I am not ashamed of the message of Jesus’ death and resurrection. This is the message that saves us.  We are saved through faith.
  • Rom 3:21-26
    • We don’t follow the law. Yet, God declares us righteous. Why? Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
  • 1 Cor 1:18-25
    • The cross is foolishness to both Jews and Gentiles, but God uses the foolishness of our preaching of the cross to save those who believe
  • Phil 2:6-11
    • Jesus humbled himself from heaven -> earth -> being human -> being a servant -> dying -> the cross. Now, he is exalted over everything.
  • Phil 3:3, 8-11
    • Our past accomplishments and our past failures – these are not the important parts of our Christian walk.
    • Our faith and the cross – these are the important parts of our Christian walk.
