We need a Savior

     We are in such desperate need of a Savior! Why did Jesus come? All you have to do is look at the headlines. Just recently, unbelievably disgusting behavior was discovered in a nearby fraternity. To me, what is a true definition of the debauchery (corrupting others by sensuality or excessive indulgence in sensual pleasures) the Bible warns against. This is the human heart without God. We are so horrified when we read what the Nazi’s did to their fellow human beings. Unimagined horrors.  This is the human heart without God. People who “claim” to know God have also done great evil but God’s word says we know who his children are “by their fruits” not just by their words. The unredeemed human heart is “desperately wicked.” All we have to do is look in the newspaper or read the history books to know that is true. Just think of how many children in the world are suffering right now because of our sin. That is why Jesus came! We need a Savior! He came to redeem the human heart. To save us from our evil hearts. To give us the power to choose a different way. He lived the perfect life we can’t live. He died in our place. He took on the responsibility for every evil act including the ones the members of that fraternity did. He paid for it all. All we have to do is believe it, accept it and be willing to yield our will, our all to Him. Give it all to Him. Jesus is the only answer to the evil in our own hearts. Have mercy on us dear Lord Jesus Christ. Call on the name of the Lord and you will be saved.

 

“ That if you confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”  Romans 10:9
