The Necessity of a Savior – Our Response of Faith Is the Key - Wednesday, December 26th

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:17

He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God. John 3:18-21

For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. Luke 19:10

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness. If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. John 12:46-48

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

We can be very thankful that God does not ask us to measure up because it is something we could never do. No matter how much we want to or how hard we try, we can never accomplish it. This is clearly demonstrated in the Old Testament through God giving His people the law. We are told in the New Testament that the law was not given as a means for people to measure up, but rather as a means of showing all of us that we are spiritually incapable of meeting God’s standards. Only the grace of God and the provision of a Savior who freely extends to us the forgiveness of sins can turn the tide. Christ’s death on the cross accomplishes the forgiveness of sins and it is our response to him in extending that forgiveness that makes all the difference.

Sin is a huge problem. It separates us from God. Christ took care of sin on the cross to fix the problem. If our response to Christ is a faith response, we are letting the Savior save us. If our response to Christ is a response of unbelief, we are not letting the Savior save us. So, the difference between one person and the next does not rest in whether they measure up or not, but rather in what they have done with Christ. This is why the John 3 passage above says, “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, thank you for being my Savior. You extended the gift of the forgiveness of sins to me and I responded to you in faith. You have saved me and I am no longer under the judgment of unbelief. Thank you for not letting me get stuck in unbelief. I know a Savior is what I needed and a Savior is why I have. I am forever forgiven and set free. Hallelujah! Amen!

it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something
informative to read?
