Passage: Philippians 2:5-11

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: The Cross

Category: Lent

Detail:

This week's sermon 

We are familiar with the story of Palm Sunday. Jesus came to Jerusalem and was welcomed as a king. But he was not ascending to power—he was descending to power. Jesus turns power on its head. So take up your cross. Don’t attempt to control others by violence, but descend into Christ’s service and the loving service of your neighbor. You will find that where you are weak, you are strong. The cross of Christ is where this reversal comes most clear. To anyone in passing, Jesus’ ministry was an abject failure on Good Friday. But now we see that His moment of greatest weakness and vulnerability was His moment of cosmic victory and overcoming power to break the curse of death forever.

About The Cross Series

There is no more central symbol of Christianity than the cross. Paul declares the cross the very core of the Gospel. The Gospel writers Matthew, Mark, Luke and John spend a third of their time on the passion, crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus. How we understand the Cross of Christ changes everything about how we understand God, the world—even life itself. When we consider all that Jesus did there, we stand amazed.
