The truth of Christ crucified is a supremely important and essential truth because it is a heavenly truth condescending unto fallen man from the throne of God. Not only is the truth of Christ crucified a supremely important and essential truth because of its heavenly revelation, but is also preeminent because of its divine work of redemption. The person of Jesus Christ should never be divorced from the work of Jesus Christ. What He has done flows from who He is; and who Christ is necessitates what He does. Jesus is not merely the Christ, but He is the Christ who was crucified.
Sadly, too many churches, too many preachers of the gospel, and too many professing Christians are loosing this central and essential truth. American churches are standing for something other than, or something more (?!) than Christ, and Him crucified. My brethren, this ought not so to be.
Let us renew the first works, repent, and return unto that First Love that we have left, Jesus Christ, the crucified, risen, and ascended Savior who is coming again.
