20/20 Insight-God’s Purpose To Save Us.

May 19th, 2020

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, we are examining more of God’s purposes for our lives with our 20/20 Insights this week.

Today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on God’s purpose for our lives to be saved from our sins.

That is why Jesus came to the world. John 3:17 tells us that “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

Jesus is God’s plan of redemption. There is no plan B.  Our sin put us in a desperate place. It was like we were rafting downstream and crossed the point of no return. We were on a collision course with a waterfall. The only thing that can save us is a sturdy branch that is extending from the bank. It is within our grasp. In the spiritual realm, Jesus is the Branch of the LORD, and He is strong enough to rescue us, so we can reach for Him today. He is mighty to save. 

Romans 10:13 says that “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Focusing on the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.
