The Necessity of a Savior – Being Saved to the Uttermost - Friday, December 28th

The Necessity of a Savior – Being Saved to the Uttermost - Friday, December 28th

For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:10

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians. 2:20

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

It is very important to realize that often we who have trusted Christ to be our Savior, have not let the word “Savior” deal the full slap in the face we need. Yes, we get it that we need a Savior in one way. We know we need Christ to do for us what we cannot do ourselves - pay the price of sin so that our sin is forgiven and we are made right with God. However, Jesus did not come to earth and die for us merely so that we might be forgiven from our sin. Jesus was raised so that He might come and live in us and do for us something else we cannot do for ourselves – live life the way it was intended to be lived. Jesus wants to save us from both the penalty and power of sin. The “forgiveness of sins” is the means by which God establishes His presence in our lives so that the life we live is His doing. Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit wants to “save” us from the futility of trying to live for Him in some way other than Him doing it for us.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I am thankful that the angel’s pronouncement of the Savior’s birth declares loud and clear that mankind has blown it and needs to be fixed. I am so glad you are my Savior. You deliver me from the futility of trying to “get right” with you and the futility of trying to “live right” for you. By grace you do for me what I absolutely cannot do for myself. What a gift your grace is to me. This Christmas is all about going forward basking and thriving in grace. Amen!

are you using for this website? I'm getting tired
of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.
I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good
platform.

Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, excellent blog!
