A Short Study of 1st Corinthians 2:2

“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” (1st Corinthians 2:2)


This was the great theme of the apostle’s preaching, and he had proved that it was the power of God unto salvation to every one who believed.

Christ and Him crucified should be the main theme of the servants of God still; for human nature is the same, the need of sinful men is the same, and “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

“The old, old story” is ever new, and ever fresh, when it is told and heard under the influence of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ and Him crucified is the great manifestation of the love of God; the sure foundation of a sinner’s hope; a never-failing spring of joy to the believer; and the song, ever new, of the redeemed in glory.

My soul, let Jesus Christ and Him crucified be the theme of your daily meditation.

Dwell upon the glory of His person, and His redeeming love. Think of all He did and suffered on your account.

Rejoice in His finished work.

Glory only in the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ, by whom you are crucified to the world, and the world is crucified unto you.

“Here it is I find my Heaven,
While upon the cross I gaze.
Love I much? I’ve much forgiven;
I’m a miracle of grace!”
