Why was the Cross Needed?

Gary Waddell - Victory Ministries of Middle Tennessee   5/2/2017

1Co 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.


Isa 52:14 As many were astonied at thee; His visage was so marred more than any man, 
and his form more than the sons of men:


There are several verses in the Bible that speak about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ but for a few minutes today, let’s focus on one very important the reason the cross was needed.

SHARING – SOMETHING WE ALL CAN DO
Gary Waddell - Victory Ministries of Middle Tennessee

2 Verses today: Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

 And Pro 3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

A Glimpse Of Worldliness And Pride

Gary Waddell - Victory Ministries / Middle Tennessee

James 4:3-4, 8 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.

Written by James, half-brother of Jesus (once a non-believer).

SPIRITUAL PIPSQUEAK?

Gary Waddell - Victory Ministries / Middle Tennessee


Eph 4:17-19 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who, being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
