20/20 Insight-Savior of the World

June 26th, 2020 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on Jesus as the Savior of the world.

First John 4:14 says, “We have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so, we know and rely on the love God has for us.”

God’s love is very big-big enough to reach the whole world. God’s love is also very strong-strong enough for us to lean on with all of our weight. We can bring our burdens to Him in prayer. We can bring the weight of our guilt before Him in confession. He is faithful and able to cleanse us from all of our sin, so that we are declared “not guilty” in His eyes. The invitation is open for anyone to come. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Experiencing this reality will turn us into witnesses of this good news for our generation.

Focusing on Jesus as the Savior of the world gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.

Focus On God-Savior Of The World

November 30th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines Jesus as the Savior of the world.

According to First John 4:14, “We have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.”

Love was the motivation behind Jesus’ entrance into the world. God recognized that we had a sin problem, and He provided Jesus to be the solution for our sin, so that we might receive forgiveness and eternal life through faith in His name. This salvation is offered to the world and is available to all who call on the name of the Lord.

At the announcement of Jesus’ birth to Joseph, the angel said about Mary, “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

Knowing Jesus as our Savior is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Encounter With Jesus-His Identity And Love

September 29th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His identity and love.

The Apostle John was one of the key witnesses to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

He wrote in First John 4:14, “We have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.”

Jesus came to the world to be our Savior. He specifically came to save His people from their sins. We belong to His family through faith in His name.

Jesus also came as God’s One and Only Son. The voice of the Father came from heaven at the baptism of Jesus to say, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him, I am well pleased.”

Jesus also came as God’s gift and the fullest expression of His love that this world has ever known. John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

A daily connection with Christ reinforces our trust in His love and identity.
