The main message of the Church is the redemption that was acquired by Jesus on the Cross for all of mankind! The Cross act paid the price, the empty tomb sealed it. The ground around the Cross is level! That is Good News…
-The King of kings
John 19:19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
-Church even then
Acts 7:38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
-The Blood bought Church
Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
-The Glory in Him
Romans 16:27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
-His Cross, Our Cross
1 Corinthians 1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
-On a hill far away
Galatians 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
At the root and power of the church is the Cross!
Great love was consummated by the work of redemption by His death on the cross
WE, Preach the cross, death, burial and resurrection by the church and our lives!
