(English) In this message Ps Lewis talks about the power of the cross in these 2 points:
(1 John 3:16 NLT) We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.
(Romans 3:23 ERV) All have sinned and are not good enough to share God's divine greatness.
(John 19:6-7 ERV) When the leading priests and the Jewish guards saw Jesus they shouted, "Kill him on a cross! Kill him on a cross!" But Pilate answered, "You take him and nail him to a cross yourselves. I find nothing I can charge him with." (7) The Jewish leaders answered, "We have a law that says he must die, because he said he is the Son of God."
(John 19:17-18 ERV) He carried his own cross to a place called "The Place of the Skull." (In Aramaic the name of this place is "Golgotha.") (18) There they nailed Jesus to the cross. They also nailed two other men to crosses. They put them on each side of Jesus with him in the middle.
(John 19:28-30 ERV) Later, Jesus knew that everything had been done. To make the Scriptures come true he said, "I am thirsty." (29) There was a jar full of sour wine there, so the soldiers soaked a sponge in it. They put the sponge on a branch of a hyssop plant and lifted it to Jesus' mouth. (30) When he tasted the wine, he said, "It is finished." Then he bowed his head and died.
(Colossians 1:21-23 NLT) This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. (22) Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. (23) But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News. The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it.”
2.It Is Finished!!!
(Galatians 2:20 NLT) My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me
