The Cross The Believer's Motivation - I Corinthians 2

Paul was single-minded in the message he preached. The cross was not only his primary subject; it was also his motivation for living. When we begin to understand all that Jesus did for us at Calvary, we, too, can receive fresh motivation to live for Him. For instance, we can...

Walk humbly before God. Since the power to live the Christian life is supplied by Christ, there is no room for pride. When Jesus died, our "flesh" nature was crucified with Him so that we could live in newness of life. Any success we achieve in living righteously or walking in obedience is possible only because He is working through us.

Serve the Lord faithfully. At the cross, we were placed "in Christ," and He is in us (Galatians 2:20). We are now His body on earth, created for good works which God has prepared for us to do (Ephesians 2:10). Jesus wasn't crucified so we could sit in pews each Sunday and listen to sermons. He has specific tasks for each of us to achieve during our lifetime.

Share our faith. Knowing all that Jesus accomplished at the cross should motivate us to share the gospel with others. This world is filled with hurting people who know nothing about salvation. Since their eternal destiny is at stake, how can we keep our mouths closed?

Too often we view the cross only as a past event that secured our eternal destiny, and we fail to see how it can motivate daily choices and activities. Stop to contemplate all that God is continually accomplishing in you though the cross. Let it be your motivation to live wholeheartedly for Christ.

Upcoming Sermon Series
      As we just celebrated the resurrection of Jesus, it's good to remember that He is returning. But as we live our lives, we often do so without thought or regard to Christ coming back. His return is imminent. Are we ready for it? Maybe we are not living the way we should be. Join us as we learn what it's like to be Living in Light of Jesus' Return.

Last Week:
      Jesus is our Resurrection and the Life. He shows us that we need Him. It's not just a long way away future hope, it's now.
      Sunday's message is usually available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      We will be starting a new series called Living In Light of Jesus' Return by looking at Deadly Religious Game.

Upcoming Events

We are suspending all services for the next few weeks. We will be streaming our Worship service on Sundays at 11 AM via Facebook live on our Facebook page and uploading our sermons on our website.
