"...Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." - Mark 2 V17
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." - 1 Corinthians 1 V18
The Gospel message is very simple that even a child can understand it, but it requires faith to receive it and let it sink deep in the heart. Christ when He preached made it clear that He did not come to call the so called wise and learned, but to seek the lost and call sinners to repentance. Even in the world we live today, people try to explain the gospel with intellectual capabilities and evidence. Now evidence is good and one should seek the truth and dig deep with a true intention of knowing the truth, but at the end it is by faith you receive the Gospel message and receive Jesus Christ into your heart. The Bible teaches, the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, and only we who are saved by grace can appreciate the true value of the cross. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
