Counterintuitive Reality

“The cross is a counterintuitive reality. It rebuffs nearly all the world’s wisdom and our expertise at every point. Normally, whatever your heart counsels you to do, you’d be well advised to do the exact opposite. We say live. The cross says die. We say defend. The cross says lay down. We say power. The cross says humility. We say vengeance. The cross says forgiveness. We say indulgence. The cross says moderation. We say self. The cross says service. We say us. The cross says others. We say happiness. The cross says holiness. We say try harder. The cross says repent of trying. This explains the very reason we have such a hard time beholding the gospel’s relevance.”
