“We know that this man really is
the Saviour of the world.”

(John 4:42)

Reflection:
Jesus Christ – King of kings and Lord of lords, God the Almighty Son, Creator and Sustainer of all Creation both visible and invisible, Judge of humankind past, present and future.

Now we acknowledge Him too as the glorious Saviour and Redeemer of the world. Here is the King of Glory Himself who

“made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death– even death on a cross!” (Philippians 2:7-8)

His purpose was not just that we might be forgiven and saved from eternal disaster. He was reaching out to offer us a share in His own eternal inheritance and relationship with the Father.

“God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir” (Galatians 4:4-7)

And then He call us His friends as well ……..

Response:
Don’t keep Him on the edge of your life – draw Him closer

Prayer:

Come closer Lord Jesus – there is such an need in my heart for You.
