Super Savior to the Rescue

David Burchard Exposition Leave a Comment

It is a trustworthy statement, deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.

No superhero even comes close to this truest of heroes.

Jesus is the only God.

He is the immortal, cannot die King over all kings. He makes all other kings look like weak, blind puppies.

He is the eternal, without a beginning or an end King. He doesn’t owe time for a beginning, and time is unable to make his glory and greatness crumble.

He was so great that no eye could see him.

Jesus is the only God.

And Jesus came into the world as the Christ, which means he came into the very world he had made and holds together in his super strength as the chosen-by-God Super Savior.

100% God, he came into the world he’d made by becoming also 100% man, without, for the slightest, moment stopping to be God. He was born into a family with a mom and dad just like I was born into a family with a mom and dad.

And he did this to save sinners, those who cannot save themselves.

Are you a sinner? Yes, you are. Everyone is a sinner. From the moment life said, “GO!”, and we made our mommies’ bellies swell and came out kicking and screaming, we’ve not been trusting and obeying God as he demands. He is good, and we have spent our lives going against him. We actually live as if we are our own gods.

For our sin against him, God has intense fury and anger and rage that he will smash sinners with forever in hell.

If you look to yourself to get out of the mess you’ve made, then you are just doomed, because you are unable to save yourself. You are the problem. You can’t be the solution. You must die for your sin.

But the good news is that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners like you. In his life, he never once sinned. He always, in everything, trusted and obeyed God. He then did the unimaginable. Because the immortal God had become also fully man, the immortal God was able to die and did just that. He died on a cross, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later.

He accomplished the impossible, the salvation of sinners. For all who would trust Jesus alone to save them, for all who would believe in him, Jesus took the punishment from God that they deserve and paid for it all on the cross.

Because of Jesus, the Super Savior of evil sinners, everyone who believes in him will be forgiven by God and enjoy eternal life with Jesus, life forever and ever.

Jesus is the Savior of sinners. He is the only Savior. Most people will ignore him and not be saved. Most people will go to hell for their sin against God. Will you ignore Jesus? Trust him. Believe in him. Follow him.

Be saved by Christ Jesus, the one who died and rose again, the only God, King, and Savior of sinners.
