WHEN YOU LET GO – TRY JESUS
The Bible begins by teaching that God created humans and the world in which they live. Humans are responsible to God because they come from God’s creative hand. The first man and woman sinned in deliberate rebellion against God, breaking their fellowship with God. Their sin spread to all their descendants, making sinful alienation from God the number one problem of all human beings. 6 While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation], at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly. Rom. 5:6
Why do you need Him in your life?
Because you need a Savior: The only way that man can be saved is through Christ – Salvation (redemption, deliverance) comes to the individual upon a response of faith, receiving the Gift of God’s Grace. Salvation includes the forgiveness of sin and the regeneration (rebirth, renewal, restoration) of sinful human nature. There is no other way. 6 Jesus said to him, “I AM the [Only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6
Because you need a Healer and Deliverer: Jesus Christ is the Eternal Son of God Who took on human life, living as one Person who has both God and human on this earth. His coming was prophesied in the OT as the coming Messiah, a Suffering Servant Who would redeem His people. He died on the Cross and was raised the third day as the Ultimate Fulfillment of the Ancient Sacrificial System. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed. Isa. 53:5
Because you need a Comforter: Holy Spirit – Jesus ascended to the Father to resume His rightful place at the right hand of God. Then the Holy Spirit of God came as the very presence of Jesus, dwelling in each Believer. 26 But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you. John 14:26
Because you have a Past: You can’t go back, but He can. He can walk into those places of sin and failure, wipe the slate clean and give you a new beginning.
Jesus Christ is [eternally changeless, always] the same yesterday and today and forever.
REMINDER: WHEN YOU LET GO – TRY JESUS!!!!
