Mark Booker | 1 Corinthians 1:17 | The Cross: The Power and Wisdom of God | This is the first message in a series that is reflecting on the cross through a study of 1 Cor 1.17-2.5. Paul immediately brings the attention of the troubled church in Corinth to the cross of Christ. This is the remedy for their troubles. In truth, the cross is the remedy for every matter in the Christian life. In this sermon, we examine the two halves of verse 17, considering 1) the priority of proclaiming the cross and 2) how not to pursue that priority.
