1 Corinthians 1:18 (NKJV) For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
The Cross is a divider of men. The Cross divides the saved from the unsaved. The Cross, however, does not divide people who are truly saved. The Cross unites those who are truly saved. Because the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, is the Cornerstone, the foundation, of our faith. If Christians, those who believe in God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, are not united then surely the unbelievers will unit together against us. Unbelievers want to come together in one great unity, and they are going to achieve a one world union in the last days. But holding together true believers of different Christian denominations is the gospel of Jesus Christ, God the Son. The Lord Jesus said He is a divider of men, and the dividing line is His Cross, His divinity. For Jesus, God the Son, is the only One who could pay the penalty for the sins of the world. The preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness because they do not believe in the divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son. But to those who believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, the Triune Godhead, otherwise known as the Trinity, to them who are saved the Cross is the power of God. The Apostle Paul makes it very clear the Cross of Christ, God the Son, brings about a unity of those who are truly saved. To those who reject the Cross of Christ, God the Son, they who are perishing the Cross of Christ is foolishness. But to those who have accepted Jesus Christ, God the Son, as their Lord and Savior, the Cross becomes the power of God. The Cross of Christ divides the world, but it does not divide true believers who are in the body of Christ, the church, in which the Lord Jesus Christ is the head. Christ units those who are truly saved.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
