The Power of the Cross

September 18, 2016 Preacher: Scott Hollingshead Series: Discipleship Defined

Topic: Gospel Scripture: Mark 15:6–15:47

The Power of the Cross
Mark 15:6-47

1 Cor 1:18, “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.”

BIG IDEA: The message of the cross is the power of God unto salvation

1. Folly sees a deserving death/Power sees an innocent substitute

2. Folly sees a man to be mocked/Power sees the Christ who is King

3. Folly sees a powerless poser/Power sees a saving sacrifice 

4. Folly sees a crucified criminal/Power sees the Son of God 

The message of the cross is the power of God unto salvation
