It just doesn’t make sense: how can something so terrible on the one hand, be so beneficial on another? How can an event so scandalous become the means of saving so many souls?
That’s the message and impact of the cross. In the eyes of some, it’s a very unlikely means of securing our eternal destiny as it looks more like a tragic defeat than a glorious victory.
Let’s not look at the cross from a human point of view. If, in our “wise” ways this looks like defeat, then we are ignoring God’s plan. It’s not about how we use responsibility or power, it’s God’s demonstration to the world in one of the most unlikeliest ways, that He’s able to save us from ourselves.
