God so loved the world that He sent His only Begotten Son that whosoever would believe in Him would not perish (eternal death) but have everlasting life. In the history of the world, no gift has ever cost so much and no greater love has ever been given.
Yet the world hates God's Son. Thus, the world and God are crosswise. The Cross of Jesus Christ declares God's love for the world, but the world is offended by and hostile to the Cross.
The preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God (1 Cor 1:18) and the wisdom of God in a mystery (1 Cor 2:7).
