Jesus Saves (from what and from who?)

CARM.org

Jesus SavesJesus is the most important figure in all of human history.  He is God in flesh (John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9), physically risen from the dead, Lord (Luke 24:34; John 2:19-21) and Savior (Acts 5:30-32).  He came to die for sinners (Rom. 5:8) to deliver people from the righteous wrath of God upon us.

Are you a sinner?

I ask you, are you a sinner?  Have you ever lied, stolen, lusted, coveted, or been angry with someone unjustly?  If so, then you have broken the Law of God.  God has said "You shall not steal; You shall not lie; You shall have no other gods before Me; You shall not murder, etc.," (Exodus 20).  He has given the standard of righteousness and if you have broken any of God’s commandments then you have fallen short of that standard and are under the inevitable judgment of God.  When you die, you will face Him and on the Day of Judgment he will deliver the proper judgment to all people.  He must because he is righteous.

If you do not like this teaching, then throw away your Bible and turn away from Christ, for this is the message of God’s word — that Jesus came to die for sinners and to save them from the wrath to come.

Jesus is the One you need.  You need him alone.  Your works won’t help you (Rom. 3:10-12; Isaiah 64:6), nor will your sincerity.  You can never be good enough and you have nothing to offer God except your sinfulness.  It is only by the love and grace of God found in Jesus and His sacrifice that you can be delivered from the righteous wrath of God upon all who have broken His law.  Jesus saves you from God.  Jesus saves you from God’s righteous judgment.

On the Day of Judgment God will judge all people for their sins against Him.  He will judge all who have lied, stolen, cheated, lusted, dishonored their parents, etc.  He will do this because He is holy and righteous.  God must punish the sinner.  God cannot and will not ignore the person who has broken His righteous law.  The Law is a reflection of the character of God.  Therefore, to break God’s law is to offend God and deny the holiness of His character.  He will be vindicated.  He will judge.

The Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God…
