I Was Sitting On Death Row

My Testimony

There was a man, who was clearly under the control of the evil one, whom Jesus liberated. When this fellow begged to go with Jesus, Jesus responded, “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you. And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.” (Luke 8:39) This is my objective also, with this post.

When we get down to the core mathematical equation of the Word of God, it gets pretty basic! It comes down to the simplicity of: God is my Creator, I have rebelled against Him, I need to be reconciled to Him or I face the judgement for my rebellion against Him! The only unexpected part of the whole equation? God’s grace!

Why is Jesus Called The Saviour?

Uncategorized

 

 

Well, we see first of a223087940_2c7f51c166_bll, that the root word, is save or deliverer. Yet, the meaning is a little deeper than even that, it also means, “preserver.” Now, have we ever stopped to think, Why is Jesus called the Saviour? I think it would be logical to ask a number of questions, and then seek to give a biblical answer for them. One, Whom or what is Jesus saving? What is He saving from? Why does someone save another? And lastly, Why does it also mean “preserver”?

Ever heard the story of the “Good Samaritan”? Do you think it was just a “good moral story”? If so, then you have missed the whole po10807580284_549dcab44c_bint of the story!

 

“And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” It is clear from the get go, that this expert in the Law, thought that surely He could do something to gain eternal life! Therefore, Jesus will show this expert, how gravely wrong he is in his thinking! For even the Scriptures say, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.” (^Isaiah 64:6) So now, let us now examine Luke 10:25-37)

Can you imagine, laying down your life for a crook?! I mean, like, not a chance, right?! Well, “For a good person, I might…maybe?,” you say.

Hmmm…, I wonder, on the other hand, would you want someone to lay down their life for you, to rescue you? I think we would all automatically respond, “Well, of course! Yes!”

Desperately Wicked

The Gospel

 

 

It seems that it is engrained in the human psyche, that we generally see ourselves as “good.” We naturally compare ourselves to others, and it tends to be, that we will always look at those that are worse than us! Then, we will say, “See, I’m not so bad! Like, I’m not a ______,like so and so!” We find this type of person in  one of the parables Jesus gave: “He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.3747096993_a992f56d64_b
I fast twice a week; I give  tithes of all that I get. But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, God, be merciful to me, a sinner! I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself, will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” (Luke 18:9-14) Also, another, whom Jesus was speaking to, wanted to make himself look better than he really was: “But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor?” (Luke 10:29) Yes, it seems that people are  quite quick to “justify” themselves!

I like the account of the disciples who were caught in the stor
m-tossed sea! For it paints a wonderful picture of our Lord. We read, “One day he got into a boat
with his disciples, and he said to them, Let us go to the other side of the lake. So they set out, and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. And they went and woke him, saying, Master, Master, we are perishing! And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased, and there was a calm. He said to them, Where is your faith? And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, Who then is this, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him?” (Luke 8:22-25)
