do i need a savior?

We visited Mason Vineyard Church Sunday. The sermon by Todd Pierce related nicely to my recent post on what is a savior. In answer to Lois Lane’s statement, “The world doesn’t need a savior and neither do I”, Pierce gives us five good reasons why Lois is wrong.
  • Jesus saves us from our guilt into his grace (Jn 3.17; 8.10-11)
  • Jesus saves us from our darkness into his light (Jn 12.46; 9.39)
  • Jesus saves us from our emptiness into his satisfaction ( Jn 10.10, 4.14)
  • Jesus saves us from our religion into his relationship (He 9.10, Mk 10.21)
  • Jesus saves us from our fear into his freedom (He 2.14-15, Jn 11.25-26)
The key is that we do in fact need a savior and not just another example.

How I rejoice in God my Savior! – Lk 1.47 NLT
