The Necessity of a Savior – Humans Cannot Cure Themselves - Tuesday, December 25th

The Necessity of a Savior – Humans Cannot Cure Themselves - Tuesday, December 25th

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:19-24

But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7

We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. 1 John 4:14

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

The Scriptures overflow with the magnificent truth that Jesus Christ and His salvation provision are a gift from God freely bestowed by grace upon any and all who will simply believe. However, our very nature, the people around us, and the culture we live in, condition and recondition us with the all-consuming notion that “getting” comes from “doing.” Oh how deep this runs and it permeates every aspect of our lives. Salvation and the forgiveness it offers are the result of God “giving” with no strings attached. There is absolutely nothing we can ever “do” to “get” it. Believing is the antithesis of doing. Believing is resting in that which God has already done for us and which we could never, ever do for ourselves.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, the reality of grace is so hard to sustain on an actual conscious level. It is so foreign to my natural orientation. I confess that I regularly default back to my doing/achieving mode of operating. Convince me more than ever before that I am truly spiritually helpless. Help me on this Christmas day to die to self-effort and make me fully alive to grace and resting in your complete and sufficient provision in Christ, the one only true Savior. Amen!
