Why preach the Cross?

Presented April 17, 2011 by Pastor Eric Cuenin


WHY PREACH THE CROSS?

Why Not Emphasize the Positive?

  • Like the Triumphal Entry – Mark 11:1-11
  • It’s seems a more joyous topic and His last public event before the Cross
  • It was a false coronation Mark 11:10-11
  • Wanted a political, national salvation
  • What happened the next day? Mark 11:12-19

We Preach Christ Crucified

  • It’s our calling 1 Corinthians 1:21-24
  • It’s the ministry of power and salvation
  • We can’t get to the Resurrection without the work of the Cross

Results of the Cross

  • Romans 5:1-9 Peace for the sinner saved
  • Romans 5:2 Rejoicing and ultimate glory
  • Romans 5:6 Came to our rescue
  • Romans 5:8 Proof of God’s love
  • Romans 5:9 Saved from wrath
  • Romans 5:10 No longer enemies, reconciled

Thanks for listening. Toward the end of the sermon, Pastor Cuenin mistakenly references John 3:30. Please refer to John 3:36 instead as this is the verse to which he intended to point us.
