The Offence of the Cross
The preaching of the cross of Jesus Christ usually provokes hostility. The Cross is a trouble shooter or causes trouble to the enemies of Christ. A battle line is drawn between us and the kingdom of darkness immediately we accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. However, our victory over Satan and his cohorts is sure through our Captain, Jesus Christ, who declares us winner even before the battle begins. “You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them (Satan and his works), because He (Jesus Christ) who is in you is greater than he (Satan) who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4.
