In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans explored how the cross is the centerpiece of everything in a person’s life and how we need to understand how much God loves us. It’s important to have a relationship with Christ and not just a religion. Tony Evans reminded readers that we have to carry our own cross like Luke 14:27 instructs us to do. The book begins by looking at who Christ is and His true identity. He also shared how powerful the blood and sacrifice Jesus dying on the cross for our countless sins was. Next, he explored the power of the cross and how we was able to be delivered from the gates of Hell and how we can live in victory. Tony Evans also revealed how we can have stability no matter what is going on around us. This chapter was so eye opening when you take into consideration that this was written in 2015 way before the world has begun to crumble even more.
I would recommend this life changing book to anyone who is wondering about Jesus and His power and they are desperately seeking a deeper relationship with Him. This book would be especially helpful to a new believer. In reading this book, I was reminded that I’m a part of Jesus’ covenant and I learned about the passage found in Hebrews 12. This one discussed how God will shake the Earth and Heaven with His voice and when does this, He is speaking. This showed me the importance of listening to His voice and doing His will for my life and making sure I’m drawing closer to Him through whatever may be happening. This taught me that I must make sure my foundation is secure in Christ. This is a very timely reading and it will benefit readers in learning about the power of the cross and who our identity is in Christ.
