Saved From What? Derek Wadsworth

Who is Jesus?  Many of us ask or have asked the question :”Who is Jesus to you?”Not really a bad question to spark a conversation but….

SIN is something we all have in common because we were all born with it. Because of the disobedience of Adam, the first man, we are all born separated from God.

“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned.” Romans 5:12

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 “There is none righteous,not even one.” Romans 3:10

The Bible further EXPLAINS: “The wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23 The punishment for our sin is eternal separation from God in Hell. The punishment for sin may seem harsh but God is a God of justice and therefore He must punish sin. “For the Lord is a God of justice.” Isaiah 30:18
But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.Romans 5:8

A.W. Pink said, “The nature of Christ’s salvation is woefully misrepresented by the present-day evangelist. He announces a Savior from hell rather than a Savior from sin. And that is why so many are fatally deceived, for there are multitudes who wish to escape the Lake of Fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and worldliness.”
