Everyone Needs A Savior
Posted by Melissa
Have you ever played Ridgecrest dodgeball and been knocked out of the game? You sit on the sidelines and wait for someone to catch a ball. Your ability to get back in the game requires the actions of another person. Your destiny is out of your hands. Someone needs to rescue you.
In life, like in dodgeball, there are many times that we need someone to save or rescue us. The trick is knowing the right person to rescue you.
Read Galatians 3:19-22 and make sure you notice verse 22.
What are some things you think imprison you today?
What does it mean that Scripture has imprisoned everything under sin’s power?
How is sin like a prison?
If sin is the thing that is imprisoning you, who can rescue you?
Have you asked Jesus to set you free from your sin? Why or why not?
How does it feel to know that Jesus has set believers free from sin?
Each of us has areas of sin with which we struggle. We all need rescuing. Left on our own, we are unable to set ourselves free from sin. There is no way we can be perfect, and so we become slaves to the sin in our lives. Sin is like quicksand, and we need someone to pull us out. We need to be rescued; we need a Savior.
Jesus is the only way out of the prison of sin. It’s not good works or being nice or following all the rules of being a so-called “good Christian.” If we believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior, we become free from sin. He is the key that opens the gates that keep us trapped. Let Him set you free today!
