Yes, Jesus Christ Himself said these words from the cross with a shout of triumph! Why? Because the perfect Lamb was found and offered up as the sin-offering for our sins. It is Jesus who is the Saviour of the world, and the only Saviour. For it is written, “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12) Yes, that is right, Jesus saves. The real question here is, do you believe this to be true? Do you believe that Jesus is able to save you completely?
This jigsaw puzzle is finished!
Yes, the penalty for sin is death. Death speaks of separation between us and the Holy God. Yet, God so loved the world, that He sent His Son, Jesus, to be your Saviour! What did He do to save you? He died in your place, because He took the wrath of God instead of you! With a certainty Jesus completed the work on the cross to save you to the uttermost! (See Hebrews 7:25) Now, if Jesus finished all the work to save you, what is left for you to do? Nothing at all! All you need is to believe that it is done for you! Oh, yes, they buried Him, but He was raised to life the on the third day just like the Scriptures had foretold! Jesus is the living Saviour! Will you trust Him to save you?
Indeed, it is clear, the wrath of God is coming upon the ungodly of this world, but the good news is that we can right now find refuge in Jesus Christ as our Saviour from sin and its terrible consequences! “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”! (Romans 10:13)
