Jesus is Salvation

A couple of days ago, I was listening to a message from one pastor, and I would like to quote a part of his sermon. In this segment, he shared an example about a boy who brought a soldier to President Lincoln.

“A soldier was sitting outside of the White House and crying. a little boy walked up to him and asking him what’s wrong?  The soldier said he had come to see the president but couldn’t get In. The boy looked at him and said yeah, it’s hard to see the president. And the boy said, came on and grabbed his hand. Soldiers stood up, and they walked past the Guardhouse. Nobody said anything to them; they walked through the white house lawn; nobody stopped them. They walk into the foyer of the white house, but nobody says anything. They walk into the office of President Lincoln, and the boy tells President Dad this man likes to talk to you.

Do you realized what son can do? whatever you need He can help you to achieved it? only Son can lead you Father . Trust Me Only Jesus will take you by hand, walk you up to the throne of grace, and say, Father, this person needs your help. They need to talk to you. Without Jesus, we are bodies without souls.”

This inspired me to write on why Jesus is important in our life.

Let us begin our journey to understand this with a passage from the Gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 6, where Jesus declares,

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”

Why is it important to have Jesus in our lives? In a world filled with distractions, challenges, and uncertainties, the answer to this question holds the key to a transformed and purposeful existence. Without Jesus, we are bodies without souls, or in other words, we are living dead bodies.

God created mankind in his own image Genesis chapter 1:27

“ So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

But Adam and Eve committed sin by disobeying God’s commandment, and this led mankind to fall short of God’s Perfect standard or Glory.

Even then, God had a plan for mankind, for He is a God of Mercy and Love. Therefore, when Adam and Eve committed a sin and confessed to God that the serpent had led them to eat the forbidden fruit, God revealed His mercy and outlined a plan for our salvation. In Genesis 3:15, we read, “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

We fully understand God’s plan in John Chapter 3:16: “For 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.” Despite our sins, God’s love for us remained steadfast.

God’s plan for salvation culminated in the incarnation of Jesus Christ. He, being fully God and fully human, lived sinless lives, providing the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Jesus’ death on the cross served as the atonement for our sins. 1 Peter 3:18 affirms this: “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.”

God’s plan didn’t end with Jesus’ death. The resurrection demonstrated His victory over sin and death. As 1 Corinthians 15:22 states, “For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”

Salvation is a gift of God’s grace, received through faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 reinforces this: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works so that no one can boast.”

So, these verses guide us that all those who haven’t accepted Jesus as their salvation are like walking bodies, but in reality, they are all dead. Only through Jesus do we have life, an everlasting life.
