The Death of the Cross

I wander do people really know what a “Myth” is because I read the headline to an article recently (I didn’t read the article by the way because of the headline) and this is what it said, 8 Myths about “The Wizard of Oz” (some of which are true). My first thought was how can any of the “myths” be true because isn’t that what a myth is? In fact, if you look up the definition of myth it will say a widely held but false belief or idea.

As I said I did not read that story but sadly there are too many people in our world today that are both sharing “myths” as truth and people believing others “myths” as truth.

Some of the myths out there being told as truth are there are many ways to salvation, there is no hell and everyone is going to heaven, people do not sin and do not need a savior and Jesus was a good person but He is not God.

This Sunday we are going to continue our theme of messages on the cross. This week’s message is “The Death of the Cross” and our text will be Philippians 2:8 “And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”

“Even the death of the cross”, wow it is not just that Jesus died for our sins but He humbled Himself and died a death on the cross. We learn thru O.T. scriptures like Deuteronomy 21:23 that whoever is hanged on a tree (cross) is accursed of God.

We are going to talk about the “curse of sin” and the “curse of the cross” and how since Jesus took on our sin and died on a cross, He redeemed us! We are redeemed thru the blood of Jesus! We should have paid for our own sin, but Jesus carried our sin on the cross so that we would not have to, that is REDEEMPTION!

I pray that you will join me in praying for this week’s message and worship.
