1 Cross Christ Centrism

2 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. 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. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent". (1Co 1 : 17 – 19) but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,. but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. (1Co 1 : 23-24)

3 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. (1Co 2:1-2)

4 The Evangelist & Jesus Christs Cross "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me (Gal 2 : 20) The Crucifixion in Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me (Mat 16 : 24) Baptism & Continuous Repentance

5 The good News … Jesus Christ … The Cross Who is God?? What did God do for you??

6 A New Person … A New Meaning "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent (Joh 17 : 3) that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death (Phi 3 : 10) that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death (Phi 3 : 10)

7 A New Person … A New Meaning and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know [Him thus] no longer. Therefore, if anyone [is] in Christ, [he is] a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2Co 5 : )

8 Beware of getting Distracted Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ (Col 2 : 8) These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, [false] humility, and neglect of the body, [but are] of no value against the indulgence of the flesh (Col 2 : 23)

9 Love Victory Security Eternity Christ Crossed The Cross is the Solution

10 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (Joh 3 : 16) Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it (Col 2 : 15) From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus (Gal 6 : 17)

11 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted (Heb 2 : 18) and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross (Col 1 : 20) and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. (2Co 5 : 15)

12 Evangelizing through the Sign of the Cross Evangelizing through the Sign of the Cross The Holy Trinity The Incarnation The Redemption The Dwelling of the Holy Spirit

13 Trampling upon Death by Death Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, (Heb 2 : 14) Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. "And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?. (Joh 11 : ) "O Death, where [is] your sting? O Hades, where [is] your victory?" (1Co 15 : 55)
