18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18
I love words. When I was a child I would repeat multi-syllabic (now that’s a good word) rhyming words over and over; fascinated by the way they rolled off my tongue. Long words, archaic words, unusual words, foreign phrases, and word origins are very intriguing to me. Because I love words, I also love crossword puzzles. For years, the only reason we subscribed to the Sunday edition of the newspaper was so I could get the crossword puzzle. Crosswords … cross words.
The cross is full of words also.
love … sacrifice … joy … pain … forgiveness … hope …
restoration … redemption … blood … healing … purpose
life … grace … peace.
Cross words are powerful words; foolishness to the world, but salvation to those of us who love cross words.
