Jesus Christ and Him Crucified

Jesus Christ and Him Crucified
“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, 
and him crucified.” (1 Cor. 2:2)
There is only one message to preach and to hear because there is only 
one message in all of the scripture – “Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” 
Every page, every story, every commandment, every word speaks of “Jesus 
Christ, and Him crucified.” What is the only remedy for sin? “Jesus 
Christ, and Him crucified.” What is the only hope of standing before the 
throne of God justified and accepted? “Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” 
What is the only message of comfort and rest? “Jesus Christ, and Him 
crucified.” What message breaks a hard heart? And what message binds the 
broken heart again? “Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” What message 
instructs, and motivates the heart of a sinner to obedience? “Jesus 
Christ, and Him crucified.” What message produces true love, unity, and 
forgiveness among brethren? “Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” Just 
preach “Jesus Christ, and Him crucified” and husbands will love their 
wives “as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it” (Eph. 5:25); 
wives will submit to the leadership and direction of their “loving” 
husbands; and children will “obey (their) parents in the Lord”, as 
Christ submitted and obeyed to the loving will of His Father. Everything 
that a child of God needs for growth in grace, and growth into the image 
of his Lord is produced through the preaching of “Jesus Christ, and Him 
crucified.” Christ is ALL! All we preach, all we hear, all we believe, 
all we have! By God’s grace, all of His people say with Paul: “We are 
determined to know nothing among us, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.”
