The Cross and Him Crucified

The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:2, “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” Where there is no cross, there is no life, and no ministry of life. The object  of suffering is that there may be a full and abundant ministry. Theory is no substitute for this. Poverty of ministry results from the choice of taking an easy road. Those who have an easy time all too often have little to give. They do not understand man’s true, deep-rooted needs. “The dying of Jesus” will mean enrichment to our ministry. It is our part only to follow. Let the slaying of Jesus work in you, so that life may manifest itself in others.
