Bible Reading: 1 Timothy 1.
Insight:“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1Ti 1:15)
Insight one: What is the focal point of Christians’ faith? It is the Word became flesh, the Lord Jesus is God but became human, and He has the complete divine nature. If God does not become a human being, but only a spirit, a spirit that we cannot see with our eyes or touch with our hands, how can we understand His mind, receive His love, and communicate with Him intimately? He is the Son of the Most High God and is like the Most High, but He came to the world as a man for us. We will never be saved unless Christ comes to the world.
Insight two: God can save the world in some other ways, why should He sacrifice His only beloved son Jesus? It is because God loves the world! In order to save the world, He was crucified for our sins through the sinless Jesus. He did not come to save good people. In fact, no one is good enough to be worthy of God’s love, since there is no worldly goodness can reach God’s standard. The Lord Jesus Himself said: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost” (Luk 19:10). People in this world cannot save themselves by their own work. Only through the ransom of the Lord Jesus paid on the cross can forgive sins, be redeemed, and have life.
Prayer: Thank the great love of God heavenly Father, through Christ Jesus Who became flesh and gives the way, the truth, and the life to all those who believe. Because of Your power of salvation, I become a child of God. May Your Holy Spirit always reminds me that the grace I received is all by Your mercy. I want to make good use of the remaining of my life and live entirely for You. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
