Jesus Becomes a Great Saviour When……

Let me begin by saying, “Jesus Christ is a wonderful Saviour!”  Among the things in the Christian life better “experienced” than “educated” is this knowledge of the Holy One, the Lord Jesus Christ.  There is nothing better in the Christian life than our personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  When I came to Christ and saw my need of a Saviour from sin, Jesus became great!  As I go about my work, though, I find people totally unimpressed with the Lord Jesus.

Recently I was sharing the Gospel with someone who was unsaved and he was so little moved by the story of Jesus and his standing before Christ as a sinner.  When we left the home and got into the car, my wife and I were talking about the man’s need of salvation.  In desiring to be a better soul winner I asked my wife what I left out or what could have been added to the conversation to help the man see his need of Christ.  She said, “He’s not lost yet; when he gets lost he’ll then want a Saviour.”

As I think upon that my heart is stirred.  Jesus becomes a great Saviour when we are overwhelmed by our great sin.  The angel appeared to Joseph in Matthew one and said, “Call His name, JESUS, for He shall save His people from their sin.”  What makes Jesus so remarkable is that He is the sin-forgiving, record-cleaning, new-start creating, righteousness-giving Saviour!

Jesus Claimed as His Own the Power to Forgive Sins

And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.  And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.  And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.  And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?  For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?  But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.  And he arose, and departed to his house. (Matt 9:1-7)

Quoting a blog post from, Amy Kellogg writes, “I asked editor of Emel magazine, Sarah Joseph, herself a convert, what is drawing women to the religion [of Islam].  Joseph said, ‘People go to, travel to, Muslim countries, and see great beauty and hospitality and that draws them to it—the art and the architecture’.”  Really?  Art and architecture?

Ladies’ and Gentlemen, we as God’s people have in our possession the opportunity to present to the world the Lord Jesus Christ.  He is the “draw” of our faith.  He is the reason I am saved!

The song writer said,

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
Whiter than snow you may be today

Grace, grace, God’s grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace, grace, God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin!

Jesus becomes a Great Saviour when… need a friend, forgiveness and acceptance.  Run to Him today!  He will save you.
